Point n'est besoin d'être mathématicien pour apprécier ce film qui met en images une partie de la théorie de Fernand Lemay. Pour ce scientifique de Québec, c'est le segment et non le point qui est non dimensionnel. De cette approche nouvelle résultent des dimensions et des situations en nombre infini que ce film reconstitue en un spectacle extraordinaire. À la fois oeuvre artistique et essai mathématique, Dimension soleils apporte la preuve que, une fois de plus, le beau n'est pas étranger aux structures essentielles de l'être.
Le 26e film de l’ONF à être nommé aux Oscars®
Court métrage d’animation sur la marche et ses plaisirs. Les couleurs en détrempe sont l'une des techniques impressionnantes utilisées dans ce film par Ryan Larkin. Pas de commentaires. Une trame sonore qui comble le silence.
This short film for kids offers a lesson in proportions in which simple actions achieve surprising results. A man wants a door in a wall. He draws a rectangle and, presto! There is an opening. In the same way, he conjures up furniture. If too high or too low, the raising or lowering of a finger puts everything right.
In this animation film, Norman McLaren imparts unusual activity to an old French-Canadian nonsense song. Simple white cut-outs on pastel backgrounds, many by Evelyn Lambart, provide lively illustrations. The folksong "Mon Merle" is sung in French by the Trio Lyrique of Montreal.
The NFB's 32nd Oscar®-nominated film.
This animated short about virtuoso stage entertainer Monsieur Pointu (Paul Cormier) is screen magic at its best. Here, the man and his violin are literally taken apart - head, feet, limbs, various items of stage attire, bow, strings, and box all go into their own separate acts, with strange and amusing results.
A child's first discovery of wind--the silent, invisible something that tickles his fancy, ruffles his hair, ripples the grass around him--portrayed here in winsome animated drawings. But the artist also shows the elemental force that carries all before it. Without words but with sound effects, this is a film of universal appeal.
In this short animation film the triangle achieves the distinction of principal dancer in a geometric ballet. The triangle is shown splitting into some three hundred transformations, dividing and sub-dividing with grace and symmetry to the music of a waltz. The film's artist and animator is René Jodoin, whose credits include Dance Squared and several collaborations with Norman McLaren. Film without words.
In this short animated film, little elf-like creatures emerging from 3 circles painted red, yellow and blue discover the primary colours and their combinations. When they venture into a circle of another colour they find that they, too, change colour. So, how do we make green again?
