O Canada (1952)
1min · Animation, Short · 1 January 1952
An animated adaptation of Canada's national anthem that takes a 3D trip across the country from coast to coast. It features the "traveling zoom" invented by Norman McLaren in 1937 -- a technique later adapted to create the star-gate sequence in Stanley Kubrick's 2001: A Space Odyssey.
