John Lennon Interview Animation

A beautiful animation done to accompany the audio recording of an interview with John Lennon in 1969. I wasn’t sure if the animation was done back then or was contemporary until I saw the image of Bush flash by.

The interview was done by Jerry Levitan, who was 14 at the time. Somehow he got into Lennon’s hotel room with his tape deck. I love the sections that show Levitan. Lennon tries to sell the idea of doing everything for Peace, and Levitan keeps on bringing it down to earth by telling him that he doesn’t like George, and that all his friends are listening to the Bee Gees. Nice.
