I met the Walrus: Animiertes John Lennon-Interview


(Youtube Direktlovepeaceunity)

Jerry Levitan schlich sich 1969 in John Lennons Hotelzimmer und brachte Ihn dazu, ein paar Fragen für ein kleines Interview über Liebe, Krieg und Frieden zu beantworten. 38 Jahre später animierte Josh Raskin Visuals von James Braithwaite und Alex Kurina und das Teil heimste auch prompt eine Oscar-Nominierung ein. They don't make Lennons like this these days anymore.

An Academy Award-nominated short film that fuses an audio recording of John Lennon being interviewed by "a 14-year-old Beatle fanatic named Jerry Levitan, (who), 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" with new animation has surfaced on YouTube.

Pen drawings by James Braithwaite and digital illustrations by Alex Kurina demonstrate Levitan's questions and Lennon's answers in I Met The Walrus, animated and directed by Josh Raskin and produced by Jerry Levitan, now in his fifties. (Listening Post)
