Produced in 1931, this is considered by many critics to be the best of Fischinger's black-and-white Studies, and like all of them, is still both fascinating and entertaining by today's standards. It is an abstract visualization of the first part of Dukas' 'Sorcerer's Apprentice' (Fischinger, unfortunately, not having the funds to purchase the movie rights to complete the composition at the time); and is presumably the direct inspiration for te Disney feature film, FANTASIA, in which Fischinger worked.
