These days, the theme and direction of our projects are dictated by our clients.
This isn’t a bad thing, we love the work we do.
The projects we take on are always interesting, varied, and incredibly fun.
Every so often, something special comes along.
And we’re asked if we can pull off something completely ridiculous.
Of course, we always do, and in March, such a project came along.
A New York based multimedia artist, Alexandra Posen approach the VoxelBox with a wildly different idea:
To bring the world of opera and Minecraft together for a series of performances put on by the Bare Opera.
Alright, here’s the plan…
I wasn’t present for the entire meeting, but I have it on good authority this is an accurate abridged version of how the meeting went:
Let’s create the visuals for L’Enfant et les Sortilèges in under 40 days. Let’s build and film it entirely in Minecraft. Here, have creative control. Go forth and make something incredible. In 40 days.
What actually happened?
The opera tells a story about a naughty young boy and the lesson he learns from household objects and garden creatures which magically come to life.
We worked incredibly hard to make this production a reality.
Set aside an hour of your day to sit down, watch it, and consider how Minecraft is being used in combination with other art forms.
It really is an exciting time to be alive.
