As a musician, I must admit that I’m not always in tune with the twists and turns of the economy. So when asked earlier this year to score a 30 minute animated film entitled How The Economic Machine Works, my first thought was, “what’s an economic machine?!” Narrated by the film’s creator, Ray Dalio, this brilliantly approachable film achieves something that is not always easy to accomplish; it entertains as it teaches. Directed by Jonathan Jarvis, produced by Heather Hartnett, and beautifully animated by Thornberg & Forester, I can’t promise that you’ll make millions from watching it, but you will have a much better understanding of how it all works. It was a joy to work on and I highly recommend setting aside 30 minutes to sit down and watch!
