Dr Terence Dobson’s book The Film Work of Norman McLaren is the fullest account of McLaren’s work yet to appear in print. He has lectured in Film Animation at the University of Canterbury, New Zealand. Among his McLaren associated activities has been the publishing of academic articles on Norman McLaren and delivering McLaren papers at academic conferences across the world. In 2010 Dobson presented, with the National Film Board of Canada’s support, a wide selection of McLaren’s films and experiments through a national tour of New Zealand. His other interests include the films of Bhutan and he has served on the jury of the Motion Picture Association of Bhutan Awards.
