The beautiful technique of 'pixilation', animation of the human form, was made famous by Scottish-born Norman McLaren in the 1950s, is a style halfway between drama and stop-frame animation, which is then combined with sequences of time-lapse and slow-motion to express certain moods.

While we take every opportunity to ensure the details for Glasgow Pixilated are accurate, we always advise that you contact the event organiser before setting out for the event to avoid disapointment.
