"Box Clever" - I scored the quirky music for this animation in 2001. Wow, time has flown! It was part of my MA in Film and Television Composition at Kingston University, London (2001-2002).

Ed Taylor produced the animation. I was provided with a small ensemble "The Fibonacci Sequence" (1 Viola, 1 Cello, 1 Clarinet and 1 Trumpet). It was recorded in Gateway Recording Studio, Kingston. I conducted the music and also created the sound design.
Ed Taylor won Best Student film - Everyman Animation Festival, London, for his work on this.
It is also featured on the Sibelius (software notation) CD with my score as a demo tutorial for scoring to picture.

ANIMATION: (As cited on Wikipedia)
Animation is the rapid display of a sequence of images to create an illusion of movement. The most common method of presenting animation is as a motion picture or video program, although there are other methods. This type of presentation is usually accomplished with a camera and a projector or a computer viewing screen which can rapidly cycle through images in a sequence. Animation can be made with either hand rendered art, computer generated imagery, or three-dimensional objects, e.g. puppets or clay figures, or a combination of techniques. The position of each object in any particular image relates to the position of that object in the previous and following images so that the objects each appear to fluidly move independently of one another. The viewing device displays these images in rapid succession, usually 24, 25 or 30 frames per second.
