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.
