This playful found-footage film made using anaglyph 3D effect focuses on a Chevrolet Caprice police cruiser. Formally, it is based on the capriccio compositions of Tschaikovsky and Stravinsky, which evoke the basic structure and effect of sudden and dramatic changes in sound. Visually, the film is inspired by 18th- and 19thcentury capriccio paintings.

The artistic genre of the capriccio can be a fantastical architectural collage, and also a painting depicting humorous motifs that tend to be satirical or even absurd in nature.

American multimedia artist, filmmaker and journalist Blake Williams works in Canada, where he is studying for a Ph.D. in film studies. He has made 13 short films since 2009, and his works have been shown at many international festivals. His 3D experiment Many a Swan (2011) was previously shown in Jihlava.
