Silver Screen” is a collaboration project between Julie Gratz of KALEIDA and Gary Waldman of Morebarn. It tells the story of a musician, inspired by his muse, who daydreams about historically romantic couples. The visual work for both the music video and the album cover for Morebarn’s new album began at the start of 2013. Both pieces were truly “Made by Hand” in the spirit of the album, as all of the artwork and landscapes were hand-painted with oils, and the animation is hand-drawn frame by frame. 43 feet of painting, and 13,000 frames later, they are proud to share this piece.

About the Director

Julie Gratz is an animator and artist who combines her musicality and skill in fine art to create animations and visuals that perfectly compliment the music they accompany. Julie grew up painting, drawing, dancing, choreographing, and performing on stage, so animation has become a beautiful culmination of all of her training and experience. She is currently finishing up a few projects with some amazing professional dancers, Grammy-award winning musicians, and international artists. Follow her on Facebook to stay in the loop.
