For your pleasure, Norman McLaren’s Pas de Deux (1968) for the NFB*: Remember, no CGI, this is all done with film, camera, and McLaren’s artistic vision.
Enter a hypnotic world of movement and light in this entrancing film that harnesses the power of cinema to trace the movements of ballet. Dancers Margaret Mercier and Vincent Warren create a dream-like effect in this award-winning Norman McLaren film, complete with the revolutionary visual effects one expects from this master filmmaker.
Another good McLaren short is: Neighbours.
