Love on the Wing

Here's a belated Valentine's Day treat for all. This is a short film from innovative animator/director Norman Mclaren from 1938. The white images you will see floating over the background were hand drawn on 35mm film slide, each slide had a slight movement to create the animation, which must have taken an incredible amount of time. This was a short for the postal service called 'Love on the Wing,' looks like a Valentine's Day card being sent. Special shout to my girl, hope everyone had a great weekend. ENjoy..

Here's another Norman McLaren short, of the ones I've seen this is probably my favorite. He films a painting and makes it come to life by creating effects with ink on the slides. This one's called 'A Little Phantasy on a 19th-century Painting' from 1946.
