330BLINKITY-BLANKBLINKITY-BLANK1955color5 min A film experiment by Norman McLaren in the use of intermittent animation and spasmodic imagery. McLaren makes play with the laws of persistence of vision and after-image on the retina of the eye by engraving directly on black emulsion-coated film achieving a "now you see it--now you don't" effect. The music is in the form of improvisation by instruments with percussive effects added by synthetic sounds scratched directly on the film. (withdrawn)
