He went to Toronto to continue his studies at the Ontario College of Art, and there his teacher Frank Carmichael introduced him to Norman McLaren, who had been asked by the National Film Board to establish an animation department and who sought to recruit talent from Canada's art schools. In 1944, Munro joined the National Film Board, where he was to remain for the rest of his filmmaking career, except for brief periods when he sojourned in Mexico designing silver jewelry under the tutelage of William Spratling around 1947-1948, was employed by Crawley Films 1948-1950, and worked with George Dunning in London at TV Cartoons Ltd. 1957-1960. In 1970, Munro was lent by the National Film Board to the Cuban Film Board for several months, to advise it on its animation department. At the National Film Board, Grant Munro's career was largely spent in animation, collaborating with Norman McLaren on the famous short film "Neighbours" (1952), in which he appeared as an actor. Other collaborations with McLaren include "Two Bagatelles" (1953) and "Canon" (1964). He co-animated Stephen Leacock's "My Financial Career" with Gerald Potterton in 1962 and produced, animated and directed "Toys", an anti-war film, in 1966. He made non-animation films as well, including the anti-smoking "Ashes of Doom", in which he played Dracula. Munro shared McLaren's interest in ballet and he made a documentary on the Canadian dancers Anne-Marie and David Holmes, "Tour en l'Air" (1973), and planned another on the choreographer Bronislava Nijinska, which was never made. Grant Munro passed away on December 9, 2017.Instrument de recherche :Graphic material (art) (Électronique) Partial item-level description for art material in ICON db.
