"pas de deux" by norm mclaren (1967)

this video was the first time that multiple exposure time-lapse animation was seen in film. although pretty mundane in todays world, this was a pretty revolutionary technique at the time. you could do this in like 2 minutes nowadays, but when this short was made, each exposure had to be laid down manually, one on top of the other, on top of the other, etc.,etc., to acheive the desired results. first time i saw this, the sound was muted and sades "cherish the day" was the soundtrack. it touched me. right here.
