A magical experience for 9 year old Jonnie who travels to an underwater city and meets his new friend Azimer, who is performing in an old television in
communication with a radio program.
This animation is hand drawn and based on an original script by Frances Barth,
with voice over by Ron Nakahara and David Asta, and includes video performance by Valerie Charles.
"Jonnie in the Lake" has been a many year labor of love, which has involved
hand drawing all the images to animate them, and roto-scope animating and editing a portion of the downtown performance artist Valerie Charles' live performance "DuAnne Does Hollywood" to include her as the new character "Azimer" in this animated video.
The screenplay is original with a portion of 'DuAnne' included in the dialogue.
