Autumn from Antonio Vivaldi ”The Four Seasons”
Dear Mr. Vivaldi, First, I apologize for setting your music to animation without your permission. Furthermore, I know it was presumptuous of me to make my own interpretations of your work and introduce otters and various other animals that you almost certainly didn’t have in mind. But, I really felt a strong desire to use animals in visualizing your work, which portrays human activities set in the autumn. I wanted to depict ”autumn” that includes it all - humans and animals, hunters and the hunted, dreams and reality. I appreciate your understanding. Sincerely, Atsushi Wada
