Originally from the Missouri Ozarks, Caryn Cline is a filmmaker and teacher who has been making films and videos for 25 years. She works with found footage, shoots 16mm film, and creates handmade direct animation “botanicollage” films. “Botanicollage” is a term she coined to describe the technique of creating direct animation films using botanical elements. Stan Brakhage pioneered these techniques in films such as “Mothlight” and “Garden of Earthly Delights.”

Drawn to the kinaesethic and haptic qualities of filmmaking materials and processes, Caryn locates the heart of her work in creating experimental, handmade, hand-crafted films, utilizing botanicollage and other direct animation techniques, employing a variety of analogic interventions with found footage, shooting with a hand-cranked camera, and often combining the results in an optical printer.
