What kind of movie is this?

If a movie is made from a picture book, where there is only the narration of the text and then the pictures are filmed, zoomed in on, etc. - what kind of movie is that?

Perhaps. Though I think of animation as drawings that make up every cell of the film. This would be taking a picture of a picture and moving around it rather then a series of them to create action (like a flip book does).

Hmmm.... Well if your are moving them around then you are animating it right?

Sorry, I may have explained this wrong. If you took a picture, drawn on a piece of paper and put it on a lightbox then took pictures of it at different angles, closeups, etc - that would be the kind of film I'm describing. You'd show the picture for several seconds with its narration and then move to the next shot/narration. I believe it's more of a storyboard that has been filmed.
