Michael Aisner and James R. Stein were just teenagers when they got a chance of a lifetime to interview Louis Armstrong, for their high school radio station. In a newly released PBS animated short from Blank on Blank, the not so rookie pair share their charming interview with the music icon.
The Blank on Blank series has become popular for discovering lost interviews and rendering them with minimalist animation. Some of their past shorts have featured interviews with Maurice Sendak, Beastie Boys, Bono and even Larry King.
