Julian Lennon - Saltwater 25 Years

Well, knock me down with a feather and call me Gladys.  Is it really 25 years since Julian Lennon released (probably his best known track) Saltwater?  The answer is no, since now we’re in 2017 it’s effectively 26 years which doesn't make me feel any the younger, for sure. That aside, Trunk Animation have come up with this beautiful video to accompany Lennon’s remix of the song and have just released it on Vimeo.  It was directed by Layla Atkinson and Jock Mooney with illustration by the latter.  Mooney's illustrations nod decidedly (and blissfully) in the general direction of Heinz Edelmann, art director on a film made by Julian’s dad who was also quite famous. The animation was done by Trunk’s Leslie Dart, Rok Predin, Simona Ciraolo and Layla Atkinson.
