I hope this brings some sunshine to our readers on the rain-soaked east coast.

Michael Patterson and Candace Reckinger, who created some of the most iconic music videos using animation ever – including A-Ha’s Take On Me, Suzanne Vega’s Luka and Paula Abdul’s Opposites Attract (with MC Skat Kat) – created this beautiful new piece for musician/composer Jeff Lynne, based on Lynne’s 1977 ELO track Mr. Blue Sky.

Patterson and Reckinger, both now teaching animation at USC, were approached by Lynne, whom they worked with on a previous project, to create the video as a collaboration with their students.
