An animated interview

Another lazy post featuring a wonderful illustrative animation/interview:

In 1969, a 14-year-old Beatle fanatic named Jerry Levitan, armed with a reel-to-reel tape deck, snuck into John Lennon’s hotel room in Toronto and convinced John to do an interview about peace. 38 years later, Jerry has produced a film about it. Using the original interview recording as the soundtrack, director Josh Raskin has woven a visual narrative which tenderly romances Lennon’s every word in a cascading flood of multipronged animation. Raskin marries the terrifyingly genius pen work of James Braithwaite with masterful digital illustration by Alex Kurina, resulting in a spell-binding vessel for Lennon’s boundless wit, and timeless message – Vimeo

The Dot and the Line

From one of my favorite animators, Chuck Jones, is a fantastic graphic animated story created in 1965, which won him his only Academy Award – where maths teams with graphics and tells us a moral! Who could ask for more.
