This year we’ve been working on a documentary about the history of Sydney Opera House for the public tours of the building. Thirteen editions, including the 18 minute full length story, French, German, Spanish, Korean, Mandarin and Japanese editions are finished and ready to start being seen by millions over the next seven years.
Crystalising the story of SOH in under eighteen minutes was a lyrical experience, packing down layers of substance and history into so few words. Hugo’s narration is pitch perfect and it’s been a good production – flying a drone around the concert hall, the JST, the foyers, animating and rotoscoping, learning to use Red Giant’s Looks, editing, etc… For rights reasons, I can’t show it, but here’s an excerpt. Go take a tour of the building to see the whole thing!
