Crowdsourced animated film ‘Live Music’ to premiere this fall

Last fall, animators around the world worked together on Facebook to make music come alive through animation. Today, Intel and Sony Pictures announced with Mass Animation that this bold new step in storytelling, “Live Music” will premiere on Nov. 20 as a short before TriStar Pictures’ animated film, “Planet 51.”

This short film, born out of an online community, was the first from Mass Animation, an effort sponsored by Intel Corporation to bring together the worlds of computer graphics, Hollywood and Facebook. The collaboration phase ran from Nov. 17 through Jan. 30, when animators submitted work that was voted on by the Facebook community.

“Live Music” is directed by Yair Landau, former president of Sony Pictures Digital. You can see a preview for the short below:

Set in a musical instrument store, this love story follows Riff, a rock ‘n’ roll guitar and Vanessa, the classical violin of Riff’s dreams. The instruments are brought to life by legendary guitarist Steve Vai as Riff and acclaimed violinist Ann Marie Calhoun as Vanessa.
