“I’m known for my grace and my curiosity…” Designed with the rich look and moody irony of a classic 1940’s Noir film, C. A. T. is a wry homage to classic movies, and a celebration of the infuriating glory of cats. An alluring and remote low-voiced woman (une chatte fatale, as it were) sings to us of her unmistakable feline nature. A shadowy upright-bass player is seen now and then, accompanying the cat’s slow and confident jazz song. Sandra Boynton wrote, designed, and directed this stylish and clever short film. It stars her daughter, Darcy, performing the track she sings on the 2017 Boynton/Ford record album, HOG WILD.
Samuel L. Jackson, in the guise of a rust-colored cartoon T. Rex, stomps his captivating way through this lively and droll animated musical short, drawn and directed by Sandra Boynton, and animated by Ira Baker. The bold and confident T. Rex is backed up by a colorful cast of singers and dancers, and one lone dino on Moog bass. The “Tyrannosaurus Funk” recording is from Boynton’s HOG WILD album, her sixth lively collaboration with Michael Ford. Boynton/Ford have a Grammy nomination, two Gold records, and a Platinum album (“Philadelphia Chickens.”)
“City,” a mesmerizing driving-beat industrial rock song, is intricately timed with a wild and gorgeous visual collage of New York City, intercut with flashes of the vocal recording session at NYC’s Quad Studios. Individual words of the song now and again appear as found images in the cityscape—neon, graffiti, street signs, decayed industrial labels. The “City” recording, performed by Falls Mountain Cowboys and Caitlin McEwan, was written and produced by Sandra Boynton and Michael Ford for their HOG WILD album, their sixth music collaboration. Boynton/Ford have a Grammy nomination, two Gold records, and a Platinum album (“Philadelphia Chickens.”)
