WHITEBOARD ANIMATION- Poets of Australia-Henry Lawson

'Poets of Australia' series. The whiteboard animation sequences were commissioned for a video by the State Library of NSW about Australian poet Henry Lawson. Several of his poems were brought to life by the hand drawn illustrations of Lew Keilar. Lew's technique relies on drawing directly to the whiteboard without tracing or post-production hands animated over prepared artwork. What you are seeing in these animations is Lew's amazing freehand drawings being developed before you. CJ Dennis and Dorothea MacKellar were also featured in this series.
