Drawn on film animation (also known as "direct animation") is an animation technique where footage is produced by creating the images directly on filmstock, as opposed to cel animation where the images are created on separate sheets of plastic before being photographed onto filmstock.

The most famous practictioner of drawn on film animation is Norman McLaren, who produced numerous animated films using this method, including Begone Dull Care.

Another Drawn on Film animator, Wes Southern, is known for his psychedelic and abstract work mostly in the late 90's. His most famous work, "Untitled 1" is available free over the Internet. Southern works with acid, sandpaper, paints, pens, razors and, "just about everything under the sink."
