USA, 1968 (MIFF 1969, Programme 5)
Director: Saul Bass
Eight separate explorations, episodes, comments on creativity, each segment employing its own style and technique to make its appropriate statement—this is the latest work of Saul Bass, sponsored by the Kaiser Aluminium and Chemical Corporation.
Bass, animator and special effects man, was the originator of spectacular credit sequences, in which the lay audience were entertained while the trade was supplied with essential information. Remember the openings of Carmen Jones, The Man with the Golden Arm, Psycho, A Walk on the Wild Side . . . ?
