James Whitney: Digital Harmony

whitney

James Whitney (filmmaker) is regarded as one of the great masters of abstract cinema. Several of his films are classics in the genre of visual music.



John Whitney’s demo reel of work was created using his analog computer/film camera magic machine that he built from a WWII anti-aircraft gun sight. Whitney and the techniques he developed with this machine inspired Douglas Trumbull (special fx wizard) to use the slit scan technique on 2001: A Space Odyssey
