Weekend Video - Tom Waits




At something of a loss as to what to post this weekend I went to the "recommended for you" section of my YouTube page where I discovered this gem of a 1979 rotoscope animated film featuring Tom Waits (and Donna Gordon) and directed by John Lamb. (Rotoscope is the process that takes live film and traces in back frame by frame into animation.)

Love your photos as does my husband.

this has nothing to do with this post but I thought you might enjoy my morning post, with photos, about Joe Biden & Bob Uecker.

Looks like the Tom Waits film has a tip-of-the-hat to Max Fleischer who rotoscoped Cab Calloway for this Betty Boop cartoon.
