Matthew Salton animates the remarkable story of musician Richard Atkinson

By Ruby Boddington

Richard Twice by Portland-based filmmaker Matthew Salton tells the story of “shoulda-been” Richard Atkinson that is equal parts heartwarming and heart-aching. It showcases animation and live action, depicting Richard’s remarkable story of learning the guitar after being involved in a motorbike accident that left him an amputee. Within two years, Richard was releasing his debut psychedelic folk album, however, a disastrous gig led him to quit the music industry, become a woodworker and stop listening to music altogether for a while.
