Love This: Jim Henson on the Drums

Jim Henson Drums video on @redcapcards

We love this paper-cut animation, Drums West, found via The Fox is Black, by a young Jim Henson. Just starting out in 1961, Henson used cut paper to create this experimental short, inspired by jazz musician, Chico Hamilton. We definitely see similarities between this video and our own Christian Robinson's musical shorts, don't you? Definitely make sure to watch all the way until the end for an awesome glimpse at how he created the short, and to see his rare, clean-shaven, fresh face! We love you, Jim.
