Cirque du Soleil reached out to us to provide 4K capture of the traveling performance show “OVO”. The objective is to create an international marketing campaign. The client would then be able to use this to showcase the performance to potential upcoming venues around the world. Of course, we were honored by this opportunity.
The project included multiple Canon C300 Mark II cameras to provide exceptional 4K quality of the high energy acrobatic performance. We were able to provide a variety of angles for each act. Along with the various shot angles, we roamed a gimbal camera for more dynamic movement. Cirque du Soleil: OVO has many moving parts in a ever evolving coordination of acts and performers; therefore, we were fortunate to preview the 3-hour show prior to the production. Scouting the location (Baton Rouge River Center) for the best camera angles and figuring out production logistics were key to a successful product.
Showcasing a 4K immersive video of the performance will engage international venues, but to truly appreciate the outstanding talent, timeless preparations, and detail that the Cirque du Soleil: OVO team puts into their show, it must be experienced in person. We highly recommend attending one of the performances as the show makes its way across the globe. https://www.cirquedusoleil.com/ovo
