The Johnny Cash Project

September 21, 2011

 

This is beautiful and amazingly done.  A collaboration of drawings in a wide variety of styles and art by a multitude of artists has been created, based on a frame by frame break down of video, then the drawings were stitched together as an animation for the song.  The video reminds me of the charcoal drawing animations of William Kentridge.  Each frame is attributed to its creator and the attributions for all of the drawings can be read in a mode offered by the online host, frame by frame. This is an ongoing collaboration and you can contribute.  Definitely see this video and learn more at The Johnny Cash Project.
