Saturday Morning Cartoons: “Pas de deux” and “Thought of You”

Two forms of art concern themselves with motion: dance and animation. Here are two films that combine them.

Pas de deux: Animator Norman McLaren never stopped experimenting during his long career, in this film he shows us ballet as it had never been seen before. (13:22 minutes)

Thought of You: Some motion can only be suggested by dancers. Some dancers can only be suggested by motion. (3:05 minutes)
