Opera at the Planetarium

Did anyone else catch the NPR story today on the performance of Hayden's wacky opera Il Mondo Della Luna being performed at a planetarium? It sounded really cool, the basic plot is that these star-crossed lovers convince the dad that they're on the moon in some alternate universe where they can get married. The performance integrates old stock footage from the planetarium's archives that plays about the singer's heads.

This video doesn't seem to do this justice, but it's all I could find:

Rose City Rollers!

I hope everyone had a great holiday season! My winter break was fun, but far too short. I spent a solid week working on this Roller Derby commercial for the Rose City Rollers opening Bout on the 16th. It's done in Cinema 4d, Photoshop, and Aftereffects. The footage was provided by my video professor Erik Fauske.

I had to hold back from writing "Let's get ready to Rumble!!" at the end, haha.
