Our largest ever live shoot – 5 cameras including 1 backstage taking interviews with the choirs before they performed.
Stage play promo
To promote this play with the aim of garnering a more high-profile theatrical run, we filmed the show using a 3-camera setup to create a Stage play promo video and DVD.
“A Greek tragicomedy that gradually shifts from the latter to the former, Antigone in New York spills forth in anecdotes and monologues.
A former artist’s studio — bare wood floors, partially tiled walls, the occasional girder — it’s bohemian even without the jazz saxophonist (a local busker) and black-and-white photography exhibition on the theme of homelessness.
Glowacki’s play has lost none of its power (TIME Magazine named it in the top 10 of the year on first release) and Malgorzata Cohen’s deeply immersive staging does it full justice. This is a production where every element — writing, acting, directing, design — comes together to present a engrained look at a world where nightstick-wielding cops offer platitudes before going “straight to Phase 3” and we walk straight past the photos on the walls on our way out the door.”
We covered a 1 man show performed by actor Matthew Jure. The intimate play was covered by 3 cameras, and the highlights of the show were compiled on a Theatre Show Promo DVD which was targeted at potential investors, directors and producers.
As a hobby writer, filming stage plays is always a treat. In this instance, a 1-act, 1-room play gave me the inspiration to write a similar piece, which premiered in the same space the year after I shot this promo to promote a touring play.
