Within the “microsociety” of the Paris Opera Ballet, housed in the beautiful Palais Garnier, also known as L’Opéra, are our three protagonists: 35-year-old principal dancer Zoé, up-and-coming 19-year-old Flora and relatively young (at 38) new Director of Dance, Sébastien. Zoe’s fast lifestyle has caught up with her as she fights to maintain her place in the company, while Black dancer Flora is desperate to confirm her spot. Sébastien is keen to throw off the coat of tradition and take the Paris Opera Ballet to the top of modern international ballet.
For the TV show “L’Opéra”, our team delivered over 60 shots. We removed unwanted shadows, intrusive elements like boom microphones and camera reflections on mirrors and windows. We populated the opera entrance and erased an entire crew from another shot.
