Cameraless animation, also referred to as hand painted cinema or scratch film, is a technique that lends itself to producing vibrant and energetic moving images that I have long enjoyed experimenting with. This film was the result of my first tests using a modified Wolverine F2D-20M slide and neg film digitizer for my cameraless animation digital conversion. I created some adapters to the Wolverine to accommodate various motion picture film formats (16, 35, & 70mm) and to offer some new options for aspect ratio. This film was made using a “Cinerama” aspect ratio adapter of 4 x 1. The music is “Jungleaya” by Los Straightjackets.

    I like the abstract shapes, colors and textures in this one. The music really goes with the imagery, too. Groovytastic!
