Directed by Jordan Belson
United States, 1952
Avant-Garde, Short


In 1952, Belson animated a little masterpiece Bop Scotch, which applied the three-frame exposure of his other animation to objects found on the street. Moving around a manhole cover makes it seem to turn, and following the swirling lines in a decorative paving seems to make them sway.
