Record Type: Person
Morris, Errol (American artist and filmmaker, born 1948)

Note: Morris is widely regarded as one of the foremost contemporary documentary filmmakers, best known for his work, "The Thin Blue Line" (1988). Morris's signature style is one of creating a cinematic collage; weaving interviews with stock footage, cartoons, or old film clips, using diverse film formats and both color and black-and white images together in such a way that the viewer is able to make a number of connections between them. Morris uses devices of his own creation, first the Interrotron, and most recently, the Megatron, cameras that allow multiple images of one subject to be taken at one time, capturing different angles at once.
