    Kids' Musician, Oscar Nominee

    It's been awhile since I checked in with Toronto's Jerry Levitan, who's put out a couple kids music CDs as Sir Jerry (read my review of his latest CD here).

    So I was a bit surprised to see him resurface... as an Oscar nominee. That's right -- Levitan produced I Met The Walrus, which animates a 5-minute excerpt of his 40-minute interview with John Lennon. I mean, I knew he was developing a movie on the experience, but it's not everyday that films based on 40 minutes of one's life get made, let alone nominated for Best Animated Short Film. So good for him.
