Imagine....

Thirty-eight years ago, a fourteen year old boy named Jerry Levitan snuck into John Lennon and Yoko Ono's Montreal room .  The short film, I Met the Walrus, based on a recording of their conversations, was nominated for an Oscar for "best animated short" at the 2008 Academy Awards, and won "Best Animated" at the Manhattan Short Film Festival.
Using the original interview recording as the soundtrack, director Josh Raskin has woven a visual narrative which tenderly romances Lennon’s every word in a cascading flood of multipronged animation. Raskin marries traditional pen sketches by James Braithwaite with digital illustration by Alex Kurina.
