Abstract:

Norman McLaren was a cinematic genius who made films without cameras, and music without instruments. He produced sixty films in a stunning range of styles and techniques, collecting over 200 international awards and world recognition. In Creative Process, director Donald McWilliams demystifies the process of artistic creation.

Drawing on McLaren's private film vaults, a gold mine of experimental footage and uncompleted films, McWilliams explores McLaren's methods, including his celebrated "pixillation" technique, and his daring forays into animated surrealism. He reveals sources of McLaren's creativity and shows how they were transformed into cinema. (Also produced in a short version of 52 min. 10 sec. under the same title, title code: 111C 0190 134.).
