I've been poking about the NFB archives again and stumbled across a great film featuring Leonard Maltin's favourite pics from the NFB. He pays a nice tribute to the innovative annimation the NFB funded starting with a Norman McLaren film. McLaren is one of those underappreciated pioneers of the NFB animation division. I watched Hen Hop when I was in high school - it was a revelation. Not all animation looked like mass market Saturday morning cartoons. Image that. Animation was also about pushing artistic boundries, exploring ideas and yes having fun. I've loved McLaren ever since.
