Animation sequences I did for the feature length documentary "The Curse of the Gothic Symphony" while working at Fifty Fifty Films
"A musical monster conceived by a composer who clearly had a few bats loose in the old belfry. A great documentary about persistence, artistic temperament and the inestimable value of facing adversity with humour." theage
