"Goldenberg and Schmuyle" odds and ends 1

Michael Tilson Thomas and the New World Symphony commissioned a group of students at USC to create animated pieces to accompany the symphony's performance of Mussorgsky's Pictures at an Exhibition at the new building's opening gala. I was given the opportunity to animate "Goldenberg and Schmuyle," one of the more character-based pieces in the series. Immediately I had some ideas for a conflict, as well as some preliminary designs.

The below designs were never used, as the piece was simplified and tweaked after a series of back-and-forth meetings between MTT, Michael Patterson, Candace Reckinger and myself.
