There is no need for a camera to make a film. The works of Man Ray, Len Lye or Stan Brakhage prove that the artistic exploration of the possibilities of the cinematographic medium exceed the act of filming. Either through direct animation, in the case of Norman McLaren, or by darkroom work and manual contact printing, like Peter Tscherkassky, this group of films bring both technical and expressive innovations.
