Scarecrows go to the Movies in 2014

 Meaford Scarecrow Invasion and Family Festival is celebrating the cinema this year. We expect to see creative movie scarecrows invading in September. A  visual phenomenon called persistence of vision -   a series of individual still pictures set into motion creating the illusion of movement – was first described by British physician Peter Mark Roget in 1824. This description was the first step in the development of cinema (Tim Dirks. AMC Film Site).
