How 'Cello' was filmed

Cellist Sol Gabetta's 300-year-old instrument was turned into a screen for a unique film for the BBC Proms, 2016.

This video explains how infrared cameras tracked the cello’s position and enabled a digital projection to stay locked onto its surface as it moved.

You can watch Cello on the BBC Proms website.
