Muybridge Zoopraxiscope GIFs

I needed some animations yesterday, so I downloaded a bunch of images of Zoopraxiscope discs by Eadweard Muybridge, and wrote a little Perl script that extracted out the images into separate PNG cels. After a little photoshop massaging to remove the backgrounds, and a little more ImageMagick, I now have 15 animated GIFs to play with.
