Every year in my town there's a festival that gathers many jazz musicians as well as others. Being very into music I chose what in my opinion is the most "rock" piece of motion graphics nowadays, the main-on-end titles for Iron Man 3. I decided to take its style to make a tribute to the best events taking place in the streets, pubs and cafés during Vicenza Jazz Festival 2013.
This is an independent project. Support the artists by liking and sharing. And above all enjoy the video + have fun :)
Sometimes a song can get stuck in your mind. Become a little piece of unwanted music, that keeps looping for the rest of your day.
Neurologists claim that stuck songs are like thoughts we're trying to suppress. The harder we try not to think about them, the more we can't help it. The phenomenon is also known as earworms, and the ongoing ‘dim di da da dum’ causes a kind of brain itch you can't scratch.
Jazz that nobody asked for is an ode to all those unwanted songs out there, that have nowhere to go. The music that haunts this film, is the amazing swing jazz tune 'Quaker City Jazz' by the long forgotten ‘Jan Savitt and his Top Hatters’. In 1937 they were the first jazz big band to feature an african american vocalist.
The film is made without any financing, and has no commercial purpose. The love of all things animated has been the driving force for the small team of 3 persons that has created it.
