The Metropolitan Opera Live - Director's Cut


For the Metropolitan Opera’s tenth anniversary season of movie-theater transmissions, Bloomberg Philanthropies, a sponsor of the Metropolitan Opera Live, commissioned Newspeak Agency to create a theatrical trailer that highlights similarities between the business world and that of the opera. For the trailer Hooligan&Co directed and filmed scenes featuring some daily activities in the business world and matched them with scenes from various Operas staged at the Metropolitan Opera. The promotional trailer is currently playing worldwide at the beginning of the Met Live in HD Opera movie-theater broadcast. Together with the Bloomberg creative team our team has directed and produced the live action shoot, edited, color graded and provided music consultancy for the trailer.
