Purim_01

Before the Internet and cheap international phone calls, I designed and art directed  by fax a version of  the Story of Esther, in plastilina, produced in Tel Aviv  and distributed in Russia.

I worked at the studio in Tel Aviv and was familiar with the artists there.  I had made other projects with them  and trusted their abilities and craftsmanship. Nevertheless I had to write out all the directions and make each drawing as accurate as I could since  I couldn’t oversee the making of the models, be on set, or look through the camera.

The final pictures and story were beautifully printed on one long sheet of vellum and rolled into a  scroll with a gold cover. Ten thousand were shipped off to Russia.

Is there any one out there who remembers receiving one of these Megillat Esther?
