The Perfect Place
Short film The Perfect Place vividly explores the storytelling potential of 360-degree technology.
Scottish Ballet partnered with the BBC for the 2017 Digital Season to create The Perfect Place, using 360-degree technology as a new way to experience narrative dance online.
The Perfect Place is a collaboration between Scottish Ballet’s CEO/Artistic Director Christopher Hampson, choreographer Sophie Laplane and BBC director Laura-Jane McRae.
It tells the story of a couple looking to recapture the spark they once had, delving deeper into the life of a seemingly perfect couple living in luxury and explores the emptiness and regret behind the perfect façade.
