Winter bound, a snow queen dreams of love and the blooming of spring. Through frosted rococo cartouches she sings about the virtues of true love accompanied by miniature animated sequences. Originally recorded by Deanna Durbin in 1940, the lyrics are reinterpreted to portray universal ideas of love:- good overcoming evil, warmth melting the snow, spring following winter. Love is All was shot entirely in camera and took over two years to complete: all optical effects and sets were created by hand. The film is made up of multilayered sequences; sometimes 20 or more exposures on the same piece of film.
