Curiosity gives the courage to trail new paths. Representing this core value of our client, we knew we had to cross borders into unknown territory.
From the specific shaped show element to the remarkable story of a truly fascinating man. So, we traveled to Italy, where we interviewed and shot the violin maker Gaspar Borchardt. In his own atelier, he told us about the importance of curiosity during his quest for the perfect wood. This was shot and edited in an unconventional frame, as the actual projection sheet that would appear from the ceiling, was shaped as the negative of a violin.
The video was followed by a touching performance of the young violinist Iris van Nuland. She started playing a gorgeous solo that led to the opening of the backdrop of the stage, gently unveiling a large orchestra in the background. As the orchestra played along from the start whilst still unseen, this created the need for an invisible conductor. The conductor stood backstage, displayed through video for the musicians, yet invisible to the audience.
