When Jerry met John Lennon

"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 an animated film about it."

I loved it. I love the use of drawing to illustrate the words and the mixture of pen works and digital animation just emphasises how timeless John Lennon's message actually is.

Lovely stuff altogether.


  1. That's fantastic. And it just goes to prove that history runs in cycles and circles. That message is as timely now as it was then.

    Peace man!

  2. That is God damned amazing.

    Great message, great visuals.

  3. That really is a fantastic piece of work.

  5. I had pinned that in Bloglines to have a proper look at. Man am I glad I did. Fantastic piece of work. As Darren says the message is timely now, I'd suggest even more so, than it was then.
