Matt Beard - Cirque du Soleil - Matt's photos are stunning. I've chosen a mixture between backstage/warming up and the show, as I aim to have a mixture of behind the scenes and the show in my series. The images show colours, textures and details really well, and they emphasise how exciting yet how challenging it can be being a performer in Cirque.
Joseph O Holmes - The Booth - 2012 - My original idea was to shoot projection rooms in a theatre. I wasn't able to get access to one, but this was what I envisioned. Dark, cinematic and subtle. The lighting, colours and emotion in this series is beautiful and really captures the atmosphere of projection booths well.
Sarah Walker - Sarah's work is what I set out to achieve. I had her vision and her imagery in my mind when shooting 'Evita', however due to lack of professional equipment I wasn't able to achieve the look and imagery I wanted. Sarah's work is bold, vibrant and out-there. It captures in the moment what is happening, and gives you a fun and clear insight into the inner workings of theatre.
Michael Mason - Marry Poppins - Leongatha Lyric Theatre - Michael's work is very similar to mine. He shoots the rehearsals, back stage before and during the show, and shoots the shows. Marry Poppins is currently in rehearsals. I am also designing animations as set extensions for the show.
Michael Mason - Gypsy - Leongatha Lyric Theatre - Michael's work is very similar to mine. He shoots the rehearsals, back stage before and during the show, and shoots the shows. I know Michael, and thought his work would be great for inspiration as it's exactly what I have done for this assessment.
