Richard Wagner, A Life In Minature

I created this animation for Sinfini Music about the life of composer Richard Wagner.

I did extensive research and tried to integrate as many elements from Wagners life into the animation. For example the stage where the piece is set is based on drawings and schematics of the real Bayreuth festival hall which Wagner built. You can see the exterior of the building in the final scene of the animation. All the buildings in the cot scene are based on real 19th Century architecture from Leipzig.
