I Met The Walrus

'I Met The Walrus' is nearly three years old now and I just found it again in my favorites on Youtube after forgetting amazing it is. Directed by Josh Raskin and produced by Jerry Levitan, the film's pen illustrations are by James Braithwaite and computer illustration is by Alex Kurina.

The dialogue is from an interview of John Lennon conducted in 1969, by a then 14 year old Jerry Levitan. It has appeared at numerous film festivals and won several awards including Best Animated Short from the American Film Institute and the Middle East International Film Festival. It was also nominated for an Oscar by the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences.

Someone on Youtube has also put the illustrations to the song 'Bin Laden' by Immortal Technique which I think works ok, but the pictures don't sync up quite as well obviously. You get the idea though and it is still a bit of a tune. Chhhheck it out...
