Blast from the past

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Fg77Iz1FT9U
An old acquaintance, Zadia Lenders, formerly of the band Clove, posted this to youtube. The sound and picture quality are crap, which is too bad, cuz it's a nice piece of animation. This is early work by Nick Cross, who is an extremely talented animator. Just google him, you won't be sorry. I was peripherally involved in the making of this thing, I think there's even a scene in there drawn by me. I raised some money for it, that's about it. It was a thank you to Zadia for recording some songs for another animation project, Angora Napkin. The songs were great. Troy Little is trying to revive the project, I'm not sure if he'll be using any of Zadia's music though. Last I heard, he had gotten clearance to use music by former Vancouver rockers Cub, the original inspiration for Angora Napkin.
