Saturday Morning Cartoons: “Studie No. 6” and “Lapis”

Studie No. 6: Oskar Fischinger was a German experimental animator. His abstract films, set to music, strongly influenced generations of artists. Studie No. 6 is part of a series of similar films set to different pieces of music. (2:03 minutes)

Lapis: One of the earliest animated film using a computer. It was made by James Whitney using an analogue computer developed his brother John. This one is well worth watching in full screen mode. (9:18 minutes)
