A Long Story Short

Pikkukala, Dir: Veronica Lassenius, 2017

This charming cut-out animated short film about clothing presents facts in a light, engaging way to open the conversation about the origin and destiny of our clothes, as well as our own consuming habits. It ends with a single piece of advice: “Love your clothes!”.

The music was written and recorded on instruments you can often find around the home or school - from the family piano to flutes, shakers, melodicas and stylophones. The main melodic idea is based on a simple 5 note scale. The aim was to support the idea of re-using the things you have and being creative.
