The film may not make it Stateside for a little while, the primary client is in France. The US title is "Cab Calloway: Sketches".
Christina Capozzi Riley did the animation here. Ben Shapiro shot the footage, Pascal Akesson edited it at our facility. Then we recut it slightly for animation, matched the dancer's moves with original Cab footage and animated off that reference.
The dancer is Matthew Rushing from the Alvin Ailey company.
Edit: I forgot to mention the illustration is by Steve Brodner. Throughout the film he draws a life-sized Cab. Prior to the start of this bit, he finishes the drawing and steps out of frame. This sequence is continuous from that.
