Philharmonia Fantastique: The Making of the Orchestra is an animated film that flies through the instruments of the orchestra to explore the age-old connection of creativity and technology. Guided by a magical Sprite, we see violin strings vibrate, brass valves slice air and drum heads resonate.
Imaginatively blending traditional and modern animation styles, it is a kinetic and cutting edge guide to the orchestra. By the filmās end, the orchestra must overcome its tribal differences to demonstrate āunity from diversityā in a spectacular finale.
