This would have to be the most spectacular and interesting small video I have ever seen. It will make your mind boggle. I recorded it around 1988 late in the morning on vhs video. I have posted this in the hope that someone can help me get my hands on a clearer copy. The first half of the video is pretty average but wait until half way when it kicks back in reverse! The music is well, strange to say the least. All your comments would be much appreciated.

Contemporary Danish Animation: Lejf Marcussen

The most well known contemporary Danish animator is Lejf Marcussen, who works in non-verbal film, inspired by music and motion. He received the Norman McLaren Heritage Award a few years ago for his body of work, started in 1977. It is visually and conceptually inventive, combining photography, painting, and 3D computer animation. His film, Den Offentlige Rost (The Public Voice, 1988) is considered a masterpiece. As the late historian William Moritz wrote in 1997:

" The Public Voice starts with a painting by Belgian surrealist Paul Delvaux and appears to zoom in on a detail, but the zoom continues into imaginary space, finding impossibly complex images hidden inside the smallest spot of each passing figure, until finally the zoom pulls out again, revealing a completely different set of details.

These include a portrait of Salvador Dali and a portrait of Marcussen himself. The dazzling transformations often bear a satirical or marvelous surprise in the suggestion that such a thing might turn into or conceal another object. Today when viewing the film, one thinks, perhaps, of computer morphing, but Marcussen accomplished his transformations entirely by hand, and rather more subtly and intricately than the later electronic effects -- above all with a complexity of ideas usually missing from 'special effects.'
