THE UNLIKELY MAESTRO – First Prize Tropfest NY 2013

Posted in 2013 Finalists, Featured Film, Homepage Featured on Sunday 06/23/13

Directed by Nick Baker & Tristan Klein

A humble rat dreams of becoming a world-famous conductor.

This is Nick Baker and Tristan Klein’s second entry into Tropfest New York 2013. Nick has written, directed and produced a number of short films over the past five years which have been anything but ordinary: a project involving more than 4,500 photographs of a mannequin in the streets of New York and a documentary about America’s foremost wizard, to name a few. Tristan Klein’s love of animation began as an early obsession with the 90’s cartoon pair Ren and Stimpy. As a child, Tristan would draw any cartoon character he could find, trying to perfect a variety of styles.

    Such a lovely short film! Knew before the credits even ran that it was the winner. Have watched it over and over (on a cell phone, no less…) and have encouraged everyone not able to attend Tropfest to watch it. Congratulations to Nick and Tristan! What a splendid childrens’ book it would make.
