Titus Andronicus teaser trailer – Gopro Hero4

If you don’t know William Shakespeare’s Titus Andronicus, it’s a pretty difficult play. There’s rape and murders, dismemberment and  a slew of thoroughly unpleasant characters. The challenge of producing this theatrical juggernought had been taken on by Off The Ground Youth non profit organisation from North West England. The task of producing a short and not too gruesome teaser trailer for the web had fallen to me. 

After shooting some press pictures during a rehearsal we selected a few key moments from the show and ran them a number of times to offer a range of shots. I shot these sequences using the GoPro rig and once again it has proved a useful tool in capturing fast moving action without sacrificing stability.

A teaser trailer should be short, gripping and make you want to see more? Let me know how I did in the comments. 

Off The Ground Theatre’s Peter Pan.

Off the ground theatre is an outstanding company based in the north-west of England and have been a huge part of my life for the past 15 years. Each summer they embark upon a month long tour of venues around England, Wales and Ireland.
It has been my privilege to join the company on 12 previous tours as an actor and member of the production team. This year I won’t be joining them for Peter Pan but here my shots from opening night at Maesmor Hall, Corwen. If you get a chance to see it I cannot recommend it enough.

If you’d like a chance to see the show at your local venue head over to www.offtheground.co.uk to find more details or to book tickets online.
