In 1969; a Beatles story

A first attempt at animation, via cut paper and hand.

When Kristi Dorothinia Hannah began work on her dance show, The Beatles Garden, I began to create a Beatles remix and video as accompaniment.

The story as it emanated from my exploratory first-time animation workshop tells of how the Beatles came into our world as godly bearers of melody and rhythm and how the world was topsy turvy with their tunes. But John was shot dead (red pool of blood by his head) and George died, too, reminding us that all golden times are evanescent.

Looking forward to more cut paper animations now that I've learned beaucoup lessons in making this one.
