Stephen Mallon – A Morning and a Night and a Morning and a Night at the Opera

News March 25, 2013 7:27 am

I asked Stephen Mallon to tell me a little about the assignment from the Times to cover the Metropolitan Opera’s daily set changes. Its a pretty incredible video, see it here.

I met with the NY Times Magazine about two years ago and since then we have been chasing projects together, ideas coming from me or them and this one was finally able to get approval by  all parties involved (homeland security killed one of the stories once).

I shot over 43,000 stills via a series of cameras to capture the motion of the metropolitan opera. Edited from the generated time lapse clips, we edited a 2 1/2 min video to show the  transition that the met opera goes through on a daily basis
