I was going to post this video today anyhow, but now it seems fitting to do so in honor of HarryiPants’ father, who passed away recently. I never knew the man, but iPants is a good man, and the apple never falls far from the tree. The video is an adaptation of Hemingway’s “The Old Man and the Sea,” done in paint-on-glass animation by Aleksandr Petrov.

“Rest well, old man.”

So lovely and happy and right, Tulasi-Priya. Thank you.

Gorgeous, and fascinating. I’ve never seen animation like this before. Each frame is like an Impressionist painting.

Wow, that’s amazing art work. I can’t even imagine the amount of work that would go into this!

Thank you so much TP, for your kind thoughts and for honouring my old dad with this.
It’s a beautifully done video of a wonderful story, and he would have enjoyed it very much.
The Old Man and The Sea is the book I own that I’ve had longer than any other.
And certainly, my father was not unlike the old man in the story. He did amazing things, and was a hero to many, and we will always remember him for all the right reasons.
