Ishibashi Mitsyuki and Osada Yuko's video 'Jack Nicholson' for the Japanese punk band Bloodthirsty Butchers was a big inspiration. I came across an article in 'Shots' magazine and bought the onedotzero 4 Dvd in which it was one of many animations featured. Its limited animation but executed brilliantly. The Graphics are really strong
I always thought it would be fun to do an animation to a Ramones song. So inspired by all those Saturday morning cartoons like The Osmonds,Jackson Five,Josie And The Pussycats as well as The Beatles of course. I did just that. Did you know The Beatles Cartoons were'nt shown in the UK (and only then in a truncated version) till the 80's ? The Beatles were kind of embarrassed by them. The first animation was to the song Judy Is A Punk. which i rediscovered when i saw 'The Royal Tenenbaums' its a great track.
