Begone Dull Care

leave a comment »

Begone Dull Care (1949) is an abstract animated film directed by Norman McLaren and Evelyn Lambart.

Using the direct film technique, McLaren and Lambart paint and scratch directly onto film stock to create a visual music presentation of Oscar Peterson‘s jazz music. The film is produced by the National Film Board of Canada.

And this is the film that has inspired the Junior Boys next album.
