Lennon's Poster

How the car scene was shot...novel!

This may only have a small amount of animation feature in it, but the whole is film is beautifully shot with a great story behind it.

A short film following the recreation of the Pablo Fanque circus poster that inspired John Lennon to write 'Being for the Benefit of Mr. Kite' for the Beatles album 'Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band'. Using the traditional methods of wood engraving and letterpress printing, Peter Dean and his team of experts bring to life Lennon's poster.

A Film By Nick Esdaile & Joe Fellows at

It was filmed on a Canon 7D with a Tokina 11-16, Tamron 17-50, Sigma 30mm and a macro lens.
