Visual Storytelling Design & Production


This second joint effort with Andrew Johnston was much larger in scope. His client - The Celestial Opera Company - held live performances of Carmen which were captured in a manner similar to a PBS recorded event complete with multiple cameras, recorded sound and even a DVD produced by us for promotional and archival purposes only.
