Since Camera lucida was founded in 1995, it has produced innovative programs with an editorial line that focuses on cultural topics but also historical and scientiﬁc issues. These programmes are intended for all types of supports, from very large format Imax 3D with Van Gogh: A Brush with Genius, to musical applications for Ipad and Smartphone, as well as television, the Internet and, more recently, virtual reality with the project The Enemy.
Camera lucida produces around ﬁfty programs a year, making it a well-known documentary and live performance producer. With its expertise and its renown, the company continues to increase its presence in all spheres of audiovisual production with works developed by talented partners. The production of live performance ﬁlms is part of the company’s DNA. These productions allow us to reach out to a wide audience through broadcasts on all types of supports and via historical partnerships (Comédie Française, Radio France, Paris Opera, Philharmonie de Paris…). But they also become objects of creation, drawing on new technologies to better address younger audiences. It is for this reason that one of the performances ﬁlmed by Camera lucida in Saint Omer Cathedral was shot in 360°, available on the ARTE 360 application.
Musical documentaries have always held a recognized and important place in Camera lucida’s catalogue. Camera lucida has also developed a veritable catalogue of portraits of leading ﬁgures in arts and culture.
