Some of you may remember that this project has been ongoing since around 2019 when it was first announced. The unmentionable disease that has swiftly scarpered many plans and consumed the whole planet then took over and this project was put on the back boiler. Throughout the time since this project surfaced, some things have changed - including that the brilliant and talented Bruce Swedien unfortunately, has passed away.
This project is solely dedicated to him, and the team behind this production were lucky enough to sit down with him to build this film.
The synopsis for this film, provided from the official website is as follows :-

Sonic Fantasy introduces you to the man behind the best music you've ever heard."
