The Water Cycle: A boogie woogie stop motion clay animation

The Water Cycle! This cute little stop motion piece about water in many of its forms was created by animator Emma Dougherty at StopMoGo, and was inspired by her time as a teacher.

Also, it has great boogie woogie music! Here’s Albert Ammons and Pete Johnson in 1944 playing some more in a hoppin’ piano duet (with young Lena Horne looking on). There’s also this link with intro-level bios and long song clips of boogie woogie greats.
