The Owl's Song The Owl's Song

Music video for Town of Cats’s “The Owl’s Song.”

Directed by Morgan Twiston Davies, U.K., 2019.

Notes from the director:

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 colored and composited. Linework was a technical pen and wax pencils, backgrounds were watercolor, oil pastel, and ink. Most of the film was thoroughly planned, but the end segment was improvisational animation to flow alongside the sax solo.
