Living Pictures

An original score sets the mood and rhythm for the films, bringingthe artist's paintings to life, and forming a three-part story. White Bird is a philosophical meditation on eternity, the beauty of nature, and human vanity. Fish is a humoresque which tells of a fisherman’s cherished dreams. Music Academy is the story of a cockroach, who wanders into the classrooms, meets all the musical instruments, and eventually falls into the clutches of an emotionalcymbalist…but... it all turns out for the best!
