Wat's Pig

An animated take on the story of the prince and the pauper, directed by Peter Lord, co-director of Chicken Run. Commissioned by Channel 4, this film was nominated for an Academy Award for Best Short Animated Film in 1996. The music brief was simple - tell the story! There is no dialogue in this 11-minute film, so the music has a free reign. Incorporated into the otherwise orchestral score are medieval instruments such as the hurdy-gurdy, the sackbut, the shawm and various recorders and drums. At this point, Wat searches for his friend the pig in the castle and discovers a whole lot more!
