- Here’s a short film I’d like to share, about a minute long. It’s a piece we did back in 1990 for Live Home Video and was part of a two-video project of nonsense poems. One tape contained poems by anonymous authors – Mother Goose and the like. The other tape contained poems by noted writers.
Russell Hoban is one of my favorite writers, so there are four of his poems included in the half-hour show. This was written by him and narrated by a young, non-actor girl who had a great voice. I’d worked with her previously on The Red Shoes.
Jason McDonald brilliantly designed and storyboarded the whole thing. He also did all the backgrounds for the two half hour tapes. This poem was animated by Sue Perrotto, who did some marvelous work for us.

I’ll put up a couple more bits of this show in the upcoming weeks.
