First experimental computer animated film



John Whitney's (animator who made first ever computer animation in film -Vertigo) demo reel of work created with his analog computer/film camera magic machine he built from a WWII anti-aircraft gun sight. Also Whitney and the techniques he developed with this machine were what inspired Douglas Trumbull (special FX wizard) to use the slit scan technique in the film "2001: A Space Odyssey" (1968).
