Yellowstone 88 Song of Fire | an multi award winning video by Little Fluffy Clouds a San Francisco - Bay Area Animation Studio

Yellowstone 88 - Song of Fire

In the summer of 1988 dry lightning sparked a fire in the parched and drought ridden landscape of Yellowstone National Park igniting a blaze that would scorch over 1.5 million perimeter acres.

This is the story of a conflagration that raged unabated for months until a snow of intense severity extinguished the flames. That winter surviving Fauna, exhausted from fire and weakened by hunger, die in greater numbers than those claimed by the fire.

This sparkling gem has played in over 150 film festivals world-wide and been awarded many accolades - Best Animation, Best Music and Original Composition, Best Narration and Voice-Over and multiple awards for Best Video Poetry.

Thanking Mark Murphy of Secrets & Machines for the music, Peter Coyote for Narration, Betsy De Fries for the Poem, Song of Fire, and our very own Creative director, Jerry van de Beek of Little Fluffy Clouds for Animation and Design.
