Houston Grand Opera Co - Star Cross'd
The Houston Grand Opera in Houston, Texas, approached us about working on an exciting new project, and we were eager to come on board. They are pushing the idea of opera forward, and are using the power of the internet to do it. They are creating a series of custom-written operas, based on the life experiences of real people who submit their stories.
The final product will be a series of short films that premiere the music along with an accompanying visual story, released exclusively online. For this first video, we created a mock-up of what one of those short films might look like, to accompany the announcement and call for stories. We see a modern Romeo and Juliet meet across a crowded party, then re-discover each other at a fire escape, the current equivalent of an Italian balcony.
This project was a huge amount of fun to do, and we enjoyed filming on the RED Epic. We are eagerly awaiting the full project coming later this year, and working with this team again!
