Norman McLaren


A couple of animations by Norman McLaren using the scratching & painting directly onto film stock technique, in the same fashion as used by Len Lye, in fact both worked for the GPO Film Unit around the same time. I'm not sure who 'influenced' who!




Boogie-Doodle, 1941


Hen Hop, 1942

And a later more conventional animation in collaboration with RĂ©ne Jodoin in the film - Spheres



Spheres, 1969

FULL SCREEN RECOMMENDED!
