After the challenge of working on two previous Virtual Choir projects VC2 & VC3, Eric Whitacre came back and challenged us to work on his new Virtual Choir 4 video - Fly to Paradise.
If managing all the individual clips from the 8.400 singers wasn't enough to challenge us, we decided to push the video further, make it bigger and better than the last two versions and fully 3D!!!
With all this in mind we created the story of a lonely manga angel that want to fly to the paradise and realize her dream.
We had over 8.400 individual clips to manage, select, crop and sync. The final result is a beautiful journey of our manga angel travelling through a city with almost 6K singers from 101 countries.
* We had the great honour to show the final video at Buckingham Palace at the Coronation Festival 2013. Eric Whitacre performed our video in front of Queen Elizabeth II and Royal Guests.
