Tom Waits For No One, A 1979 Animated Tom Waits Performance / RT @laughingsquid

from IMDB: “…This short was created by rotoscope – a process that traces back the live action frame by frame and turns it into animation. The original live action was shot with 5 cameras – 2 high, 2 low and one hand held. The music from “The One That Got Away” blared in the background as Tom Waits sang karaoke style different lyrics on each take. Two strippers, 6 takes and 13 hours of video footage were edited to make a 5 1/2 minute live action short which we turned into animation. A total of 5,500 frames were caricatured and then re-drawn, inked and painted by hand onto celluloid acetate to produce this film. …”
