Tom Waits’ 1979 Animated Short ‘Tom Waits For No One’ To Be Restored And Re-Released
Released in 1979, Tom Waits for No One is a groundbreaking animated short that was recently rediscovered thanks to YouTube.
It was directed by John Lamb and features Tom Waits performing ‘The One That Got Away’ at Hollywood’s La Brea Stage. This footage was carefully transformed into animation using then-revolutionary rotoscope technology (used much later on Richard Linklater’s Through A Scanner Darkly, for example), and had to be drawn by hand.
As it approaches its 35-year anniversary, the director is launching a Kickstarter campaign to restore the film to its original glory.
