Little Shop of Horrors Behind The Scenes

Behind the Scenes During the Little Shop of Horrors Photoshoot

The talented crew at The Footlight Club is back in the studio and gearing up for their latest musical production, The Little Shop of Horrors.

We had a meeting a few months back to discuss the various goals for the photo shoot. There was the all important poster image, which needed to fit into both a vertical and horizontal layout, some behind the scenes images for the theater newsletter, and an image of Audrey II for the back of the postcard.

Little Shop of Horrors Behind The Scenes

The behind the scenes video (scroll down) helps to illustrate the minimal set we worked off of to create these poster photos. Our preplanning helped us to keep the shoot short and sweet.

However, we did need to trade the big Audrey II for the little puppet for the cover shot. The big one just took over the set too much!

A huge thanks, as always, to Todd Sandstrom Tobin, who was last in the studio for our poster for RENT. And, to Jen Ryan Gelzleichter, who is co producing the show with Carol Pyper. Also, thanks to Stephen Wrobleski, the director, for digging the poster concept and being so supportive, even as he was out of the country for the shoot!

Also, I need to thank Shay McKee for doing the behind the scenes interviews and for being my photo assistant for the day.
