John Lennon digitally animated short film, nominated for Oscar

"I Met the Walrus" was nominated for Best Animated Short at the 2008 Oscars. Loren Lankford of Paste Magazine writes: "In 1969, 14-year-old Beatles fan Jerry Levitan tracked his idol, John Lennon, from a Toronto airport to his room at the King Edward Hotel. Inside, he convinced Lennon to do an impromptu interview. Thirty-eight years later, Levitan teamed with director Josh Raskin to create and edit a five-minute short film entitled 'I Met the Walrus' based on the interview.
