Why? is this blog called “Movies Without Cameras” (part 1)

A good movie makes you think and feel, and puts you in touch with your self. A movie that can achieve all this without using cameras is even more worth watching.

The first time I saw a movie actually made without cameras was in 2001 when I bumped into an an animation by Norman Mc Laren, the canadian filmmaker who made most of his films by painting and scratching directly on celluloid strips.

You can see some of his original films and process here.

This one won an Academy Award in 1952, and was considered violent.
