The concept born out of the performing-arts drought of the COVID-19 era, Gilmore is producing and directing a series of short films, each a stark and innovative adaptation of an opera aria. Since September of 2020, Gilmore has released two of a planned trilogy, the work already garnering attention and praise: "vividly directed" (Planet Hughill), and "dark and disturbing" (operaramblings). Gilmore's goal has been to cross-pollinate multiple visual and theatrical genres, while providing unique opportunities--and professional-grade aria recordings--for vocalists.


MORTE (2020), stars mezzo-soprano Rachel Labovitch, singing "Morte col fiero aspetto," from Hasse's Marc'Antonio e Cleopatra (1725). 

SEMPRE LIBERA (2021), stars soprano Michelle Drever, singing "E strano... Ah fors è lui... Sempre libera," from Verdi's La traviata (1853).
