Essentially, the terminator film incorporates a stop motion which is an animation technique whereby the artist physically moves toys in that it appears to move on its own. It works by the toys being moved in small increments, then photographed in a single frame and afterwards moved gently and photographed once more. Doing this again and again builds an illusion of locomotion when there is a faster sequence played in the film series frames.
