1914 - 1987
Norman McLaren's style seems to show flow and gesture even through abstract qualities. He was often creating directly onto the film. Very experimental procedures yet at the same time being very in control.
McLaren was born in Scotland, then moved to Canada where he is known as one of the most awarded film makers in Canadian Film History.
In 1939 he worked as an animator on the short Stars and Stripes. Throughout his lifetime his name was connected to many many films, shorts, programmes and the list goes on.
