As a filmmaker and art director I’ve always appreciated quality work. In college I worked at an educational film company where I saw the disparity between education film production and other types of production. Educational films usually got one ta
ke, simple titles, and not so talented writers and artists (college students like me!). But I was holding up a standard that I knew no one could meet. That standard was Donald Duck in Mathmagic Land, a film that I had seen as a kid. This movie fascinated me and made me want to know more about math. Perhaps it even inspired me to pursue my present career.
The film was made in 1959 and won an Academy Award for best short documentary. Two years later, it was shown on the first show of Walt Disney’s Wonderful World of Color. Recently, I found it on YouTube. It does not contain the in-depth instruction that Elevated Math has, but it’s certainly entertaining and definitely worth watching. Enjoy!
