René Jodoin for the National Film Board of Canada
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.
I was a fan of Norman McLaren way back when I was in art school. This is amazing stuff given how it was done (like clay animation: step animation with still photography).
