VINTAGE BIG ROCK CANDY MOUNTAIN

Harry 'Haywire' McClintock wrote his first song, the story of "Big Rock Candy Mountain." around the turn of the last century which was based on fairy tales he had heard growing up, conjuring up images of houses built out of sweet cakes and candy. In this visual adaptation a scruffy old hobo brings us on a journey around this wonderfully lazy place where hand-outs grow on bushes and you can sleep out every night.

“An old song tells of a wonderful place where the mountains are made of whipped cream, the houses of cookies, the trees of candy and the clouds of spun sugar, where you can sleep all night in the open air and everyone is happy. We saw shining animation and a script with its tongue so far in its cheek, it practically broke through the skin” - Boulder Mountain
