‘When I Hear Music’ is a hip-hop dance film production using animation that explores the emotional rollercoaster that young people experience during their first day at high school.
‘When I Hear Music’ aims to fill in the feelings that are often hidden away because sometimes words are better expressed through rhythms and vibrations. This production curates the universal soundtrack for every young person’s first experiences of being someplace new.
