Spooky surreal cinema string sounds with bespoke short films by Oscar-nominated filmmaker Anthony Lucas.
Building on Camerata’s hugely successful 2015 series Things that Go Bump in the Night, this spooky and surreal family-friendly concert features specially commissioned short films by the Oscar-nominated and Brisbane-born filmmaker, Anthony Lucas, with a live orchestra score performed by Camerata.
These specially commissioned bespoke films by Anthony Lucas traverse the impossible to the surreal, with lots of humour and a hint of the fantastic. Accompanied by a soundtrack of the suspenseful and dramatic, from works such as Bernard Hermann’s Psycho and Camille Saint-Saens’ Danse Macabre, this spooky and mysterious evening will keep you on the edge of your seat.
From gripping moments to laugh-out-loud comedy, Camerata perfectly complements the on-screen elements through music that will spook and delight. This will be a riveting cross-genre performance that is sure to become a Camerata cult classic.
Please join Camerata in the foyer after the show to meet the musicians and have a chat.
