Beren op de Weg is a brillant short animation film by Nadia Meezen.

It is about Theo, an average man who lives a happy live and who loves his little yellow car. One morning he is driving down the road when suddenly he sees a bear lying on the road. He tries to evade the bear but by doing so he crashes into a tree. From then on he starts seeing bears everywhere around him, scaring him to even get out of his house..

I wrote the music for this nice short film. I recorded a clarinet, played by Jason Alder, which plays a big role in the piece. Guitar is played by Arjan de Wit. When recording a string trio for Canvas Blanco. I was lucky we had some time left to experiment. I used some semi-improvised pieces of that. The violin is played by Erika Bordon, viola by Anna Sophie Torn and cello by Remco Woutersen. Sound design by Rowan de Geus.
