How do I achieve the illusion of movement in my design?

Illusion of Movement

I've included movement, for those of you interested in web design and film. Basically, movement or motion is implied through repetition or pattern, or other illusions of movement. In web, animation provides movement, which also implies repetition (the animation is time lined to repeat patterns). Movement in film and web is also an illusion. The movement is actually many clips of an action that appear to move smoothly in motion.
