But then again, Norman McLaren rewrote the book again...Neighbours (French title: Voisins) is a 1952 anti-war film by Scottish-Canadian filmmaker Norman McLaren. Produced at the National Film Board of Canada in Montreal, the film uses the technique known as pixilation, an animation technique using live actors as stop-motion objects. McLaren created the soundtrack of the film by scratching the edge of the film, creating various blobs, lines, and triangles which the projector read as sound. McLaren was one of the great innovators in film editing. stop motion animation and experimenting with optically synthesized sound and he was Canadian...He is in own way just as important in the evolution of film as art as Keaton!
