A young mosquito leaves his small town in the country to seek fame and fortune in the big city and fulfill his dream of playing in one of the greatest jazz bands of all time at Sid Villa’s Music Hall…

The Storyville Mosquito is a live animated graphic novel that’s performed, filmed and scored in real time. A team of performers, musicians, foley artists and technicians cinematically bring the characters to life using miniature sets, puppets, multiple cameras and screens. The puppets tell the story accompanied by an original music soundtrack featuring a string trio and Kid Koala on keyboards, turntables and electronics.

The Storyville Mosquito speaks to the themes of honesty, improvisation, inner voice, style, and collaboration. It is the follow-up to Kid Koala’s hugely successful Nufonia Must Fall Live stage performance, further developing the emotion, the craft, the art and Kid’s skills as a composer, writer, and in this case, director.
