I am trying to create a video-tagging job, where I want workers to watch a video from National Geographic and mark a 3D coordinate (X,Y,t) for the appearance/disappearance of each animal in said video.
Is there a way to do this on MTurk without actually having to write a programme from scratch? And if not, how do I ask workers to run my code (Python 3.7) via MTurk?

The stock templates for mturk are pretty basic and there are none that could be used for what you're describing. You can code your own mturk task from scratch in the requester api though. Maybe there is some web based python environment that you could use so that you wouldn't have to write all new code, but I'm not sure. In any case, you can definitely do this type of thing within mturk.
