The Fly

1980, Ferenc Rófusz

Ferenc Rófusz won the Academy Award for A légy, in which the audience sees the world through the eyes of a common fly. On the surface, it may not seem to be more than some rotoscoped footage that was filmed with a fisheye lens, but it all works so well because the camera itself "acts" perfectly like a fly, and the added sound effects complete the illusion.
