This season, the Triangle Wind Ensemble is celebrating our 20th Anniversary Season. While many groups commission compositions for such milestone anniversaries, we decided to take a different approach. We have instead chosen to give ourselves, and the wind band community as a whole, the present of an original Fantasia-like animation specifically created to accompany an already existing piece of wind band music. We hope that this gift will help engage audiences both at its premiere at our concert on April 13, 2019, and also across the globe when we make the film available to high school, college, and other community concert bands and wind ensembles.
We have partnered with NCSU Associate Professor of Art + Design Marc Russo to develop this original 3D animation to accompany Sheltering Sky, an extraordinarily beautiful composition by the talented and widely-performed composer John Mackey.
While the project is still in the development stages, sketches of the compassionate, and adorable, main character are taking form, as shown in the image to the right.
To help finance this ambitious project, we are seeking sponsors who are willing to help us make this vision become reality. Sponsor names will be listed in the film's closing credits, and additional benefits for "producer" and higher levels will soon be announced, including prints of limited edition "cels" from the final animation. Sponsorship levels are shown below...
