Sid Laverents

And who is Sid Laverents, you ask? Someone who cheered up my morning with this 9-minute film he made back in 1970 (or was it 1970? It apparently took him four years). Made and starred in, playing all the instruments.

Really, I'm just tickled. And impressed as all get-out. It was a delightful way to start the day.

I'm also encouraged by the fact that Sid, there, only started making amateur films after he turned 50. Amateur in the best sense of the word, all for love of it.

I know I tend to skip long videos, but this is here in case you need a little pick-me-up.

"Save the ribbons!"
