Showcasing the power of music and imagination, The Firebird depicts the struggle that we, as artists, go through for creativity and communication. Set to Igor Stravinsky's "The Firebird" Suite, the video relies on elements of live action and heavy animation to tell the story of a rebellious note, a musical vortex, and a musically driven energy mass. Enjoy!
Shot and edited in only 20 Days, this video premiered alongside the famous Cincinnati Pops Orchestra to a sold out show at the historic Cincinnati Music Hall.
