Tom Schroeder/Dave King: Bike Ride & Bike Race

Scenes & Songs is a feature focused on the intersection of music and film, or in this case, TV. Each installment intends to examine movies and shows that involve significant musical subject content, distinct soundtracks, or maybe even just an excellent song used for a specific scene. View all

Tom Schroeder is an animator from Minnesota who a few years back teamed up with drummer Dave King to create the short films Bike Ride and Bike Race. He credits King's narrative musical style as being the inspiration for these films. I only recently stumbled upon this collaboration and have really enjoyed being at the intersection of sound, animation, and story telling.
