Soup of the Day

Lynn Smith
2013 | 3 min
Set to a rollicking doo-wop song by Canadian songwriter Alexander “Zander” Ary, this animated short tells the amusing story of the dilemma a husband and wife face every time they go out to eat. Will their culinary differences douse the flames of romance, or will love prevail? Director Lynn Smith brings her gouache paintings to life, animating “directly under the camera” and serving up a tour de force of storytelling. Vocalists Susie Arioli and Zander Ary bring a unique interpretation to this funny, loving song, and add a dash of tenderness to the colourful animated couple.
