Rapunzel

Was the directorial debut of Pietra Mello-Pittman and was shot entirely at The Clore Studio in The Royal Opera House. The music was composed by Ella Spira and was recorded at Air Lyndhurst Studios, The Bond Hall.
A ground breaking short ballet film presenting a fusion of traditional ballet and cutting edge digital technology, utilizing the state of the art Red One Hi definition Digital camera, the first digital movie cameras that match the detail and richness of analog film.

Synopsis

The Prince (Xander Parish) has been blinded by his fall from the tower, but Rapunzel's (Sabina Westcombe) tears restore his sight and he can see Rapunzel's beauty once more.

This was a co-production we worked on with the Royal Opera House and was the starting point for us creating a team to film a feature-length version of Rapunzel.  The feature-length film will be shot in a film studio.
