Honk! The Musical Poster Photo Shoot
When the Footlight Club approached me to do a Honk! The Musical Poster I jumped at the chance. This is a great, silly, fun show with some surrealist over tones. So, we set out to capture the actors and bring it over the top!
On our shot list was creating the group of Mother and the Ducklings as well as pulling in Robb Russ to be our Ugly Duckling.
Photography for the Theatre and More
As is our standard operating procedure, we were creating photography for more than just the poster. We also needed to whip up some character portraits for the theatre’s social media channels.
But, it had to fit with the branding and keep the surrealist tone of the rest of the collateral.
We threw a wide angle on and climbed up the ladder to shoot. In a nut shell, we just told the actors to get into character and then cut loose. There was very little wrangling to be done and I spent more time giggling 5′ off the ground than looking through the view finder.
Ah, actors! Gotta love them!
