Dog Sees God, The Poster

The Boston Teen Acting Troupe, helmed by Jack Serio and Catherine Spino, is back in the studio for their fourth time. This time, we are working with them to create a poster for the dark comedy Dog Sees God, an “unauthorized parody” by Bert V. Royal, that answers the question: What ever happened to Charles Schultz’s Peanuts characters, now that they have all gone on to high school?

Some call it a teen angsty play about adolescence, others see it as a remarkable look into the darker side of today’s high school experience.

For me, after reading the script and watching this young troupe (most have just graduated from high school themselves)  in action during their production of God of Carnage, I am excited to see how they handle it.

As always, having a studio full of young adults on set brings a unique sense of energy to the set. These ladies and gentlemen were enthusiastic, collaborative and professional way beyond their years.

It is always a pleasure to work with talented people under those circumstances!

We had already discussed the layout and the goal for the poster.

During the shoot, we would do down-and-dirty silhouetting and drop potentials into the layout to check position, angle and lighting. Post shoot, we tweaked the individual files further and then did nice, tight silhouettes. The approval process was very simple, since we had a rough of the poster ready before the shoot was over.

The play opens August 10th at 8pm. It should be a great, if somewhat disturbing, show.  Let me know what you think of the poster, especially once you see the show.
