Drawn-on-film animation is one of the traditional methods of animation. In this technique the object is directly drawn on the film reel, using several tools, methods and techniques. The drawn-on-film animation skips the whole process of photographing, cel animation, video sequencing and other modern processes. Instead, it imposes the animated figures directly on the each frame of a film reel.
The animators can use either developed (black) or undeveloped (blank) film in small or large sizes; which is best suitable for their technique. The film reel is put down across the work surface and fixed into the place. After placing the film, the animator works from frame to frame to design image on each tiny frame, managing reel with each sequential frame to display the motion.
The major benefit of drawn-on-film animation is that it's comparatively inexpensive and it does not need complex camera arrays, expensive software or thousands of cells. A few sample images and etching tools, a projector and a roll of film, can be sufficient to let an animator discover their capabilities and play with a wholly medium. The simplicity of this animation allows the animator to be more innovative and creative in storytelling through animated images or videos.
