Overview

Jimi Hendrix and Michael Jackson are two of the stars of this quirky and inventive animation in which a musician can become his own guitar. This is an early work by talented and humorous animator Paul Berry (1961-2001). After studying at Wolverhampton Polytechnic, Berry joined the Cosgrove Hall animation studio in Manchester. In 1991 he was Oscar nominated for his short horror film 'The Sandman'.
