Movie Flipper is a small program that will print a "flip book" from a QuickTime movie that can be printed and assembled. It is very bare bones - it expects the frame rate and other features to be set beforehand, and it seems to have problems with certain codecs and save settings, but is otherwise a neat little program to play with.
Source code contains some useful QuickTime-related stuff, including the beginnings of a Mutable Quicktime movie class that allows you to add and remove frames or get an NSImage reference from a given frame of a Quicktime movie.
QuickTime movies to be printed should be exported at 3-5 frames per second. You do not need to export the sound track, although it won't hurt to do so. Print the movies to your printer (your printer's margins will automatically be taken into consideration) on heavy paper or card stock. Once you have done this, you can cut them out on the black line and put them in frame order (the frames are numbered) and staple or otherwise bind the paper together.
