We made this short animation as an entry into a Live Brief for the Royal House Opera. We were inspired by what was said in the briefing at the royal house opera about how an aria is the pivotal moment, not only driving the storyline further but going in depth into the plot. With this in mind we wanted to briefly touch on every part of the narrative in our short film. We wanted to create a lot of atmosphere but also with the emotion filled atmosphere of being at the opera and experiencing it first hand.
We wanted to show the ‘live’ aspect of an opera and how it comes to life in front of your eyes, to keep it fresh but also to give it the sense of it being a dangerous and authentic artform.
