Many of us grew up watching educational filmstrips from our constricting, wooden school-house desks. Who can forget the whir of the projector fan as the teacher’s pet slowly cranked each frame into place when she heard “Boop!” on the soundtrack? Brian Dewan makes his own versions of these filmstrips – entertaining, beautifully drawn and wonderfully narrated. In their own way, they are indeed educational.
For the first time ever, the filmstrips Brian has created in the past decade have been collected into one DVD volume. Each frame is skillfully hand painted and lettered. These remarkable images are accompanied by his deep, resonant narration and musical accompaniments. But the world these filmstrips evokes is a mysterious one, in which an unnamed and stern authoritarian dictates “moral” lessons of dubious origin.
The DELUXE EDITION Includes the regular DVD + a limited edition letterpress print of the “More Than One Way to Skin a Cat,” signed by Brian Dewan himself. We only printed 100 copies of this special version, so order yours soon!
