Motion Painting No. 1
The film was created by applying oil paint on acrylic glass. Fischinger filmed each brushstroke over the course of 9 months. In 1997, the film was selected for inclusion in the United States National Film Registry by the Library of Congress as being "culturally, historically, or aesthetically significant".  The Academy Film Archive preserved Motion Painting No. 1 in 2000, though they do not have distribution rights.
