Watch the Music

This year's London Film Festival has a new publicity film, the amusing short which they play at the beginning of each showing. There have been some striking ones in the past, this new one re-interprets key moments from significant films in terms of everyday life in London - the film scenes being indicated by their background music. It is surprising how many scenes we can easily identify just from a few bars of their music. The result is strikingly amusing as the visuals contrast with our memory of the original films.

The only problem is that no-one seems to have listened to the final sound track - the succession of musical excerpts jar continually as they are intercut with each other. I wish that a way could have been found to have made the music flow a little better.
