I was Video Animator for the English National Opera production, at the London Coliseum, West End.
I assisted in remaking the original video design, where we pulled certain elements from the set and costume design, and refined the storytelling, reducing the original video to it’s most important elements and re-filming others. 

The servants, running around the stage avoiding their uncaring masters – the protagonists – have a greater presence. They appear during changes, dancing with the ever-present bull’s skulls and playing with the idea of the skulls as symbols of ownership or masculinity.
