Cameraless Film Art

Created in 1988 by Lynn Tomlinson in "Myth onto Film," an interdisciplinary Film/Anthropology course taught by Robert Ascher, at Cornell. Here's the course description:
"In myths, whales fly, pebbles throw themselves across streams, and trees are transformed into women. Toward the end of visualizing myths--in particular the myths of other people--we explore the possibilities of animated film. The technique used is cameraless animation; that is, we draw and paint, frame by frame, directly onto movie film. The intellectual problem is to visualize the myths of others so that they are comprehensible to us but are not thought to be of us. Reading includes introductory works on both myth and animation and there is background reading on the particular myth that is committed to film."
