||LONGEST DREAM | 3:44 mins
2011, Canada, directed by Kim Beggs
Longest Dream is a colorful music animation video that features a tiny tiger, a beautiful old rusted circular saw blade, lots of glass beads coming and going, emotive claymation and painting on paper. The lyrics (about letting go and other things), are poetic and wrenching. The voice is unique and pure. The music is sparse, with powerful harmonies. The pedal steel, bass and drums, come in part way through and stay until the end. The song, Longest Dream (from the album Blue Bones), received Honorable Mention in the 2011 International Songwriting Competition.
