PHANTOONS of the OPERA

Hey, remember that one time when you took Shirley Bassey’s cover of “All I Ask of You,” slapped it over some itunes visualizer animation and turned it into a Phantom/Bond crossover music video complete with movie credits?

Yeah, now that you have ToonBoom Studio you should totally re-do it but add silhouette animation to make it a *real* Bond opening credits sequence.

Maybe I’m opening up my ask box for a video Q&A.

Or maybe I’m just trying to trick you into asking me things.

I’m sneaky like that.

"That’s… Spectacular"
The 25th Anniversary Tour introduces yet more changes that the phans are raving about because that’s what’s written in the pre-approved press material.
This spoof of a press photo from the 25th Anniversary Phantom Tour features a new costume for the Phantom inspired by Maria Björnson’s original designs. Or not. But who checks for accuracy these days, right?

When Napoleon III decided a new opera house should be built in Paris, Charles Garnier, a practically unknown architect at the time, was selected to design it. Construction of the Opera Garnier began in 1861, during Haussmann’s reconstruction of Paris. The lavish building has a confusing design that is unlike anything else in Paris, but it remains extravagant with its open spaces and wide staircases made this way specifically for those attending to be able to showcase themselves. This opera house was the haven for entertainment and socialization during the late 19th century.

And yes, this is the setting for The Phantom of the Opera.

By request - favorite Phantom cape swishes in a photoset. Names and locations in the captions.

Pretty sure it’s a rule that if you own a cape, you have to learn how to swish it.
