Bouncing box picture BROODY CUBE  has a fine day.

Please ignore the giant black moving eclipse-oid ellipsoid sun moving across the sky. By the time that surfaced, it was too light out to reshoot...

This assignment was an opportunity to manipulate time instead of space. For a stop-motion movie of a bouncing cube, typically one would expect to have to move the cube further for the high-velocity time steps close to the ground, and very little near the peak. Working in the time domain, it was only necessary to move the cube a half-inch each shot instead of calculating a parabola. On the other hand, in the post-processing the images were displayed with durations from the formula:

t ~ root(x+1) - root(x)
which is a discrete reworking of:
x = .5 a t2.

There wasn't an extra camera handy to take a picture of the camera and the way it was strapped to the ad-hoc-tripod music stand with velcro safety lines and all... ad hoc photo workshop
