Week 7: I Met the Walrus

I absolutely loved this animation. Even though the audio drove along the piece, the animation added a whole new depth to the words. Animating Lennon’s words literally (like calling Levitan’s classmates squares and having them be animated as cubic children) and symbolically (when Lennon said “...the only thing they don’t know about is non-violence and humor” and showing the humerus bone for humor as a play on words), was a really powerful convention for this animation.

Stylistically, it was really well done as well. Being a fan of hand drawn art, I enjoyed the animated Lennon. Combining the hand drawn elements with real pictures in a Monty Python-esque way looked really, really amazing. I think that combination of imagery is what really made this piece as powerful as it is, to really visualize Lennon’s words in that manner.
