Reviews

“Boogie-Doodle” (1948) IMDb

Creators

Norman McLaren (director).

Categorization

Abstract short (3 minutes) with a multilingual opening including my native Swedish. Pen and ink directly onto film.

Subject

To begin with, a black two-dimensional heart chases an embossed blue dot as it bounces between two lines on a red field, accompanied by a merry piano.

Commentary

The three-dimensional effect adds character very nicely.
