New York Lightboard Record (1961 IMDb)

Categorization

Short (3 minutes) mainstream-media record of a longer (9 minutes) presentation in a less respected medium, promoting tourism.

Subject

An animated piece by McLaren is shown on a large Times Square lightboard (low-resolution binary black-and-white digital animation) and we see some audience reactions to it, including a fascinated boy and McLaren himself.

Commentary

Alas, I haven't seen the animation in full, but the presence of the audience is nice.
