Original narration by Orson Welles; made possible by a grant from the National Endowment for the Arts. Animation. Using the cut-out style of animation I tried to marry the classic engravings of Gustave Dore to the classic poem by Samuel Taylor Coleridge through a classic narrator: Orson Welles. It's a long opium dream of the old Mariner (Welles) who wantonly killed the albatross and suffered the pains of the damned for it.
