The Orchestra

Mikey Hill
Australia, 2015, 15 minutes, animation
Imagine a world where a band of tiny musicians follow you and play a soundtrack for your life – communicating your emotions, fears and hopes. In this world lives elderly Vernon; a lonely man whose crippling shyness causes his orchestral musicians to perform terribly out of tune. When Vernon and his little band fall for their new next-door neighbor and her classical ensemble, they find themselves presented with perhaps their last chance at happiness - a chance to strike a chord and play in harmony. But first they must confront their stage fright.
