FI12831.026 35 mm unfinished productions #9 negative which is McLaren’s shooting on Alexeiff’s pinscreen in Paris (1961, methinks). It is very interesting indeed. Norman never followed up. He told me that he did not have the sort of focus needed to make a film on the pinscreen, a task of inordinate slowness for him. Very Important. Circa 100 feet. The animation is a fluttering abstraction; there is also animation of cubes moving across the screen leaving tracings behind. This is certainly related to material in FI12831.029
