Jack Of Ash Animation by Jessie Berliner

10 Jun

Jessie Berliner, an Animation/Drama/Music student at Bennington College has made this wonderful animation for Jack Of Ash from Fairy Tales for the Lost and Wandering.

“For my senior work in animation I knew I wanted to work with a song that told a story, preferable a fairy tale. I’ve always had a love for folk tales, not the new, sugar-coated stories, but the original, darker, tales. I’ve been a fan of Paul Shapera’s music for a while, and when I remembered that he had a couple of albums with the kind of song I was looking for, I went investigating. Re-discovering Jack of Ash was a stroke of luck, and I’m so thankful that he let me use it for this project.

I was captured by the haunting grace of the story, and the instrumentals inspired me as a dancer and (sometimes) choreographer. During the development of this animation I went through so many possible interpretations and variations, and while I could only fully realize one, I like to think that all that thought comes across in the nuances of the work you see before you.”

    This is beautiful! “Jack of Ash” has always been my favorite song off of that album, and it’s fantastic to see it brought to life, so to speak.
