When legendary guitarist Jimmy met the Fender Telecaster, rock history was made.
As part of Led Zeppelin’s 50th anniversary celebrations, Smith & Foulkes created animated short ‘The Mystical Journey of Jimmy Page’s ‘59 Telecaster’. Taking viewers on a psychedelic tour through a pivotal time in music, the film is shaped around Jimmy’s own words on his relationship with the iconic guitar.
Immersing themselves in the heady days of the late 60’s, Smith & Foulkes creatively expanded around Jimmy’s narrative to focus on what happened when these two creative energies collided.
“Holding this guitar, he said ‘here, this is yours'”
“Reflective and almost kinetic, the Telecaster was a channeling vehicle for music.”
“A real custom-made psychedelic guitar”
“That was it. That was the decision to form Led Zepellin”
