This thesis examines how the cinematic concept, or phenomenon, commonly known as Frozen Moments has been used as a storytelling tool. While photographic technology has enabled the phenomenon to be realized, animators such as Tex Avery were known to employ techniques that are comparable to Frozen Moments. The success of such cartoon practices indicate that combined with the advent of modern technology animation can be used to substitute complicated camera movement. Drawing from historical studies of photography, sculpture, and cinema, thesis aims to provide a chronological overview of the development since the end of the 19th Century.
