A while back we were fortunate enough to add some design flair to a video biography about the Memphis all-star soul ensemble The Bo-Keys. As we viewed the raw footage we were struck by the fantastic stories of its legendary members. We thought that in particular, the lead guitarist, Charles "Skip" Pitts' colorful interview begged an animated interpretation. And so we did just that.

When Mr. Pitts passed away at the age of 65, Memphis lost one of its great musical contributors. Our deepest condolences go out to his family and band members.

Many thanks to The Bo-Keys band leader Scott Bomar for letting us use the track 'Sundown on Beale', and for keeping the soul of Memphis alive.
