The ancient legend, retold through the traditional medium of second-hand television.

This was made in 2000. I was partially inspired by Plunder-phonic music at the time, specifically Negativland, and I wanted to see if I could create a visual equivalent.

It was one of my student films at the RCA, and also one of my first attempts at computer animation. Strangely enough, I didn't use After Effects for this; I used Photoshop to create frame-by-frame animation, and then compiled it all in Premiere. The second-hand TV clips were grabbed and digitised from VHS tapes.

Ah, the comedy of naivety and inexperience.
