This is awesome. If I had one wish, it would be that this was longer.

I agree – longer would be great. But have you ever seen the pained look an animator gives you when you start adding stuff to the script? I could happily have done another few minutes of poem, but I think at some point, Jon would have literally lost his mind.

I can't even imagine the patience it must take. I remember doing flip books as a kid and I think that animators must be a bit OCD.

Hearing his story in poem form, I think that it would be cool to see something like this acted out in live action with an older stuntman doing scaled back versions of the stunts from his prime. I guess then you trade the tedium of animation for the perils of having an older person doing stunts.
