Videos > Tam o’Shanter by Robert Burns – 70ft mural 2011

18 July, 2016

This is the epic final edit of my Tam o’Shanter stop motion video, featuring a full rendition of the poem by George Rendall and the Turkey Smokers. Expertly edited by Mettje Hunneman, the final product is an amazing collaboration of poetry and visuals, where the combination of fast pictures and fast words combine to make a meaty broth that’s remarkably palatable. Once you hear Tam o’Shanter at this speed, somehow other versions seem laboured. This video depicts me painting the image from the initial sketches right through to the completed 20 metre long mural – a ringside view of the artist in action.
