Philharmonia Fantastique: The Making of the Orchestra is a 25-minute concerto for orchestra &animated film that flies through the instruments of the orchestra to explore the age-old connection between creativity and technology. PhilharmoniaFantastique is a collaboration between composer and DJ Mason Bates, Oscar-winning director and sound designer Gary Rydstrom, and animator Jim Capobianco. Guided by a magical Sprite, we see violin strings vibrate, brass valves slice the 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 film’s end, the orchestra overcomes its differences to demonstrate “unity from diversity” in a spectacular finale
