Grant Munro dead at 94

Grant Munro in 1947

Toronto. Years ago, Grant Munro of  the National Film Board (NFB) made animated films that were Oscar contenders. Ironically,  Grant never owned a computer or cell phone!

Grant created all his animations manually since the NFB of the day was without any computing capacity. (The computers of the 1950s and 1960s were massive room size beasts with puny computing capability. Even high end computers of the 1970s and 1980s were less powerful than a modern smart phone.)

His big event was collaboration with Norm McLaren on the 1953 Oscar winning Neighbours for the NFB in 1952.
