Cut-Up: The Films of Grant Munro (DVD)
Directed by Grant Munro and Norman McLaren
To encounter the work of Grant Munro is to discover an artist of inimitable talent and charm. Whether as an animator, documentarian, actor, dancer, editor, cinematographer, or general provocateur, his talent and all-out goofiness have graced the world of cinema for more than half of a century. Munro even collaborated with legendary animator Norman McLaren on some of his best-known work, and their pixilated masterpiece Neighbours (included in this set) won the best short film Oscar® in 1953.
CUT-UP: THE FILMS OF GRANT MUNRO features a cavalcade of animated classics such as Three Blind Mice, Neighbours, Two Bagatelles, Christmas Cracker, Canon, Toys and The Animal Movie. This compilation also includes some of Munro's hilarious work in live-action films including The Ballot-o-Maniac, Ashes of Doom and Boo Hoo. Finally, a special treat comes in the form of two films that Munro and McLaren shot but never completed, making their world premieres in this set: Six and Seven Eighths and On the Farm.
