Sebastian, a web-opera

Based on The Passion of Saint Sebastian, this web-opera consisted of a competition in which filmmakers created short Internet films (2 minutes or less) set to any part of the music. 39 films were entered from Albania, Brazil, Canada, India, Italy, Japan, Mexico, US and the UK.  A jury (a filmmaker, art critic and museum director) selected the winner and runners-up.  This 39-film web-opera was premiered as an Internet festival and is viewable here:
