“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.
