Music video for Town of Cats‘s “The Owl’s Song,” by Morgan Twiston Davies.
A celebration of Edward Lear’s “The Owl and the Pussy-cat,” embracing nonsense and following life, love, and joy in all directions. The film was traditionally animated, and digitally coloured and composited. Linework was a technical pen and wax pencils, backgrounds were watercolour, oil pastel, and ink. Most of the film was thoroughly planned, but the end segment was improvisational animation to flow alongside the sax solo.
