Hi, Q. Not only talent, but a great sense of humour and wonderful wit.

"The Log Driver's Waltz, 1979, was directed by John Weldon. The animation is set to the Mountain City Four/Kate and Anna McGarrigle recording of the song. The film is one of the most-requested in the entire collection of the National Film Board. The NFB also produced a French version of the film.

The Log Driver's Waltz is available for viewing on the National Film Board's website. Occasionally, The Log Driver's Waltz appears on Canadian channels like CBC Television as filler between two programs, much like Heritage Minutes."

John won a prestigious award for his work on that (John, help me out here because I can't recall the name of the darned award) and the song with animation became a classic in Canada almost overnight.

You can see more of his work at that the following link:
