Presented in the form of a feverish love dream, 1001 Nights (based on Amano`s book of artwork) is the first performance of the groundbreaking "Filmharmonic" series, which presents new orchestral works by film composers in tandem with short films made by A-list directors. Nights is the series's only animated work, and plans originally called for the film to be completely computer animated.

It is less than half an hour long and easy to find online.

In fact this movie was thought as an interpretation of an orchestration and nothing more so the visuals and music flows together spectacularly. Speaking of those elements, ...

While this particular piece is only twenty-four minutes long, it's also rather lackluster in the art department. Sure, the animation flows smoothly with the orchestral piece, but that doesn't mean the art is good. Yes, the person who did the drawings does have an eye for the human form. This ends up a mute point when a good chunk of the scenes are so muted out because of the pastel colors the viewer struggles to make out what is going on, making it way to tempting to tune out the art work and just listen to the music. The problem with that is - despite ...
