Oskar Fischinger – Motion Painting No. 1 (1947)

This experimental film is a study of an abstract painting as it grows out of the mind and soul of the artist and filmmaker. Painstakingly hand-painted in a Impressionist pixel-point style over a period of 9 months (!), and equally laboriously stop-animated, Fischinger captures not only the wonderful decision-making process of the artist at work, but the “life” that the work itself takes on as it changes and grows. Use of color, patterns, and pacing compliment and clash with one another before the viewer’s eyes and lead one into an impossible world that seems none-the-less real, and all the more engaging for seeming to just be made of pure MAGIC!
