This was my first exploration in luminance animation. Nacreous pigments on the polished deep black surface of the scratch board allow vibrant white lines and airbrushed life forms to dance until the city and the airport landing at night finish the piece. This is the first film that I made with a luminous tunnel and got the work doing the tunnels for the feature DREAMSCAPE. This was by far my most popular animated film and is still screened today.
