Rock Stars of Reading part 4: Leaving Lane Smith

Monday, April 6, 2009.

In the final of three parts that feature Author/Illustrator Lane Smith (on JOMB), we go through Lane’s archives to see ten years worth of idea development for his amazing book John, Paul, George and Ben.  Then, we hit the road for Northampton with a fun stop at the Dr. Seuss National Memorial Scultpure Gardens in Springfield, Massachusetts.

Still catching up on these videos, but I just had to stop and say that besides the fascinating content, I am so impressed with how well-constructed they are. I love all the driving scenes that make us feel like we are on the road trip with you, especially with that wonderful background music. I love how you cut from scene to scene with the very professional sound fade-ins, and the black title frames. I love how you’ve cleverly included the children without ever showing them in a way that makes their faces identifiable, and yet without it feeling like the kids are hiding from the camera. It’s an amazing piece of work.

Candace, Andy, Phyllis, Peggy and Heidi,

Thank you so much for watching and for taking the time to leave such fabulous feedback.

I’ll be sad when the series is done (but there are more adventures in the works……
