Broken Orchestra

Season 1, Episode 6: Let the Music Play!

Cody Ball

Broken Orchestra

"The Playback," from the Video Consortium, is a behind-the-scenes peek in which nonfiction filmmakers describe their creative process as we see it unfold. Produced by VC members Horatio Baltz and Cody Ball.

Over 1,500 unused and abandoned instruments are repaired and donated to public schools in Philadelphia. The Symphony for a Broken Orchestra project collects, fixes, and returns the instruments to the hands of students. Director Charlie Tyrell takes us behind the scenes in this short documentary.

Produced and edited by Horatio Baltz and Cody Ball. Mixed by Cody Ball.
