A very technical production of 1984 left us with no time to shoot the usual full production for the Royal Exchange Theatre. 10 minutes with Jonathan McGuiness, who plays Winston Smith, left us with few options but a stunning Front of House image. In the 60x40 inch FOH poster you can see his hands holding a bottle of 'Victory Gin' reflected in his eyes.
An exiting new departure for me was this video shot for The Royal Exchange Theatre as a pilot to future work. I managed to team up with a talented visual effects editor and editor who really brought this together. This was a relatively simple run through a scene but we have plans to incorporate interviews and other footage to create trailers for chosen plays later in the season. Fascinating to be learning new skills and adapting old ones in this way.
