Stop motion animated sequences for ‘The Sparks Brothers’ the documentary feature from director Edgar Wright (Shaun of the Dead, Hot Fuzz, Baby Driver). Premiered at Sundance 2021, Screened at SXSW and Hot Docs. Distributed by Focus Features in the US and Universal Pictures internationally.
“According to “print-the-myth” legend, John Lennon rang Ringo Starr to tell him that Marc Bolan was performing with Adolf Hitler – an anecdote hilariously brought to life on screen by animator Joseph Wallace (with cheeky voice cameos from Nick Frost and Simon Pegg). Having worked dark wonders on the video for Sparks’s 2017 single Edith Piaf (Said It Better Than Me), Wallace mixes stop-motion puppetry with paper collage cutouts, ensuring that Wright’s film remains as cinematic as its subjects.”
