Menace to Maestro Short Film

Narrative, Children & Family, Comedy




Based off Carlos Douglas Jr’s award-winning animated short, "Kenya’s Symphony," young Kenya comes to life with a gaggle of classmates who attend the symphony on a school trip. Can a classy orchestra mix with a rambunctious crowd? Can you play a tuba with spitballs inside of it? Does music bring us all together? Let’s find out… 

This film was a collaboration between Douglas Jr. and Big Teeth Co-Directors Elise and Gregg Jaffe who after seeing the original animated short were thrilled to use their filmmaking chops to bring the character and story to life (literally).
