Norman McLaren was a Scottish animator who is better known in Canada for creating animations for the National Film Board of Canada. At first, McClaren did not have access to a camera so began creating animations by physically scratching and painting on the film stock. Norman McClaren created many short-films throughout his career, beginning in 1933 with 'Seven Til Five'. Below are a couple of McLaren's films which I watched in the lecture.
