From Up on High
“Moon high above in the summer sky
My love is watching you shining.
Speak to his heart from
up on high
Tell him I’m lonely and pining.
Moon high above him
Speak to him,
Say I love him.”
A story about love that transcends the distance between the two vastly separate worlds of Rusalka and her Prince. Isolated and agonized, Rusalka is still determined to do it all over again to reunite with her love. What is this mystical element that drives her to believe?
'From Up On High' is a promotional film I directed for the English National Opera's rendition of Rusalka - an age old story following the love and loss of a water nymph by the same name. It was a group project with two other team members done as a part of our academics at UAL Central Saint Martins.
