The people at the non-profit group Blank on Blank had a terrific idea: take audio-only interviews with famous people and animate them. (They include a diverse group, ranging from Martin Scorsese to Ray Bradbury to Robin Williams.)

A recent project is an animated interview with David Bowie as he reflected back on being famous in the 70s.

“There was a real feeling of inadequacy in [the early ’70s]. I never really felt like a rock singer, a rock star. And I always felt a little bit out of my element. Now, from my standpoint, when I look back, I realize that from ’72 through to about ’76, I was the ultimate rock star.”
