Two years ago, I thought it would be a pretty funny
idea to animate a few tracks from Del Close & John
Brent's brilliant "How to Talk Hip" comedy album.
Unfortunately, 2 years later it's become an obsessive
study in vintage animation, style & timing, expanding
like an nightmare soufflé, birthing more and more
cut-aways, characters & details. Whereas it was once enough
to simply show "irritation", I now have a facial state labled
"exasperated with nowhere scene" which is different from
"cant believe where this square is coming from".
The main fellows, an affable square and his
beatnik interviewee:
The natural born bringdown artiste:
"The MAN" executing a bust:
Someday this madness will be done, and I'll post all
30 seconds of it on youtube.
