20 Shots of Opera


Hugh Chaloner is an award winning editor and videographer with extensive experience in music, video and TV.

In a career spanning more than three decades, Hugh has had the privilege of working behind the lens and in the cutting room with some of the biggest names on the world music stage and with Ireland’s foremost and emerging creative talent. He has enjoyed working with artists across a wide range of musical genres - from Dylan to Cooney & Begley, Springsteen to Planxty, Garth Brooks to Elvis Costello, Hothouse Flowers to U2 and The Gloaming.

In addition to music performance and conceptual work, Hugh has also worked on many TV commercials including Guinness Anticipation, corporate film work mainly in the areas of nutrition and medicine and scripted TV drama - most recently on the award winning ‘The Young Offenders’. He has deep interest in sustainable development in third world countries and has ongoing and fruitful involvement with the NGO community in east Africa.

For Hugh, the opportunity to collaborate on 20 Shots of Opera has been a wonderful coda to a truly strange year.
