Zombie Flute from FilmNorth on Vimeo.

“Zombie Flute” was created as part of a filmmaking residency at Avalon School in St Paul, in collaboration with both FilmNorth and the MN Opera. As part of the residency, a class of middle school students studied Mozart’s Magic Flute, storytelling and the hero’s journey as well as filmmaking and film genres—then created their own films, inspired by Mozart’s opera. All the films premiered at the Ordway as part of the MN Opera opening of it’s production of The Magic Flute in the Spring of 2014.
