"The Trees"

Shot in 1985, this fan-made tribute short film is inspired by the 1978 RUSH song "The Trees". Utilizing the talent of family and friends, Jim Towler created original designs for the sets, costumes and puppets used in the film.The film was shot on Kodak Super 8 sound film and edited on a hand-cranked movieola. Recently rediscovered, the original film was digitized in 2016 with the Super 8 sound stripe replaced with a digital recording of the RUSH song.
