Two Boys is an opera composed by Nico Muhly with libretto by Craig Lucas. It explores the darker side of the internet, the deceptions and manipulations of a digital age. I created a large number of settings for characters to exist in but also longer sequences for Nico's beautiful choruses. It was a challenge to find a visual language to represent the complexities of the internet and the nuances of the story in a very short time. I am greatly indebted to Leo Warner and Mark Grimmer for designing the video, and giving me the opportunity to work in this medium. A full list of credits can be found on the 59 productions site. Special thanks to Satya Meka for his AfterEffects Plugins
