The ARC Ensemble (Artists of the Royal Conservatory) released “Two Roads to Exile” (RCA Red Seal/Sony Masterworks) in May 2010. The CD features two exiled composers from Germany, Adolf Busch (1891-1952) and Walter Braunfels (1882 – 1954).

As a way to promote and support that album I was contacted last summer about working on a short “graphic novel” style film in collaboration with ARC. The plot of the short depicts the story of Adolf Busch’s last months in Germany in 1933. Short, it consists of about 44 frames of layered art i created to be animated in after effects. The final product is only 6 minutes in length. Take a moment to watch and learn more about “the German violinist”.

But the short has been well received and is now officially up on the ARC site after it’s run on BRAVO.

I enjoyed doing this mostly. Directed by James Murdoch and produced by Simon Wynberg [of ARC] and James Murdoch. To be honest I’m not entirely happy with how the art was animated in the end – some frames work but some did not get executed as I’d have liked. And some moments are a bit to goofy I think. Would love to have a go at that myself some time.
