Layout sheet #5 for M. Henry Jones’ animated film, Soul City, with the Fleshtones, 1978.

‘You Can Twist / Your Can Frub / All I’m Saying is Man You Better Move On’, one of the hand-drawn animation layout sheets that Jones used to sync the numbered stills with the timing of the audio and strobe effects, is another recently acquired item. Covering only 10 seconds of the film, this layout sheet shows the incredible complexity of the project.
