Music Monday: Teach Your Children Well

Jeff Scher has another music video out and it’s fab:

It’s all in his trademark animated watercolor-from-stills-and-footage style that we saw in his video for “The President Sang Amazing Grace”:

Aside from the sheer beauty of the paintings (which is a large part of their appeal), he excels in building a visual story from the images. In the “Teach” video the first half is black and white and covers protest and events in the 1960s era (when the song was written and recorded). He adds color as he shifts the images to the present day and the connections are literally illuminated. My favorite echo is the protest fist at the Olympics with the kneeling NFL players.

Watch it!

Zoe finally got to PA where Jeff had sent the frame he gave us:
