So how about this for a literary rock n roll mash up. An animation of Orson Welles reading ‘Moby Dick’ as the images are drawn in the pages of Herman Melville’s classic book with the soundtrack being provided by Led Zeppelin playing their rock n roll classic, ‘Moby Dick’.
How beautiful is that? Can you beat it?
Here’s what director/editor/mash up person, Alex Itan, had to say about it:
This is more or less a birthday gift to myself. I’ve been drawing it on every page of Moby Dick (using two books to get both sides of each page) for months. The soundtrack is built from searching “moby dick” on You Tube (I was looking for Orson’s Preacher from the the John Huston film), I couldn’t find the preacher, but did find tons of Led Zep and drummers doing Bonzo and a little Orson reading from the Novel for a failed Italian T.V. film…… makes for a nice Melville in the end.
