Pittsburgh Opera Gigapan Project

Pittsburgh Opera Make-Up Session from StartPoint Media on Vimeo.

Back in October, as part of research with Carnegie Mellon University’s Gigapan Time Machine project, I created this short video time lapse as an add-on to the overall project. The Gigapan Time Machine movie is still in post production with Carnegie Mellon. This short film features the process Pittsburgh Opera’s Wig Designer and Make-up Artist James Geier used to transform soprano opera singer Jasmine Muhammad and apprentice Olivia Dolan into operatic characters.

You can check out the production stills here:
