Director Bruce Alcock takes his inspiration from Chopin’s eponymous composition in this wonderful 3D animation, which pays tribute to the moments of beautiful chaos that can spring suddenly from the mundane.

Chuck and Sylvie have needed to have a serious talk for a while. But following a boozy cocktail hour, Sylvie spontaneously invites a dozen of her colleagues over for dinner. Set to Chopin's Fantaisie-Impromptu, this 3D animated film is an ode to ordinary moments of sudden, beautiful chaos.
