Deering and Down, a duo of local folk musicians Lahna Deering and Rev. Neil Down, has put together a video using stills of the Sears Crosstown building that they’ve animated with colorful Christmas imagery.
The animation project features the band’s song, “I Wonder What Elvis or Rufus Might Say.” Elvis and Rufus make an appearance at the 2:29 mark.
“We worked with our friend Matteo Servente trying to get everyone in the mood for this festive time of the year,” Deering said.
And to top it all off, the Sears Crosstown redevelopment team actually didn’t have anything to do with it.
“Cool seeing the local arts community start to use the building as inspiration in a grassroots way,” said Kerry Hayes, director of public relations for doug carpenter & associates LLC.
