A Brave Face trailer

Vamos Theatre Company

The Brief.

This was the first time the client had ever allowed cameras into a rehearsal, so it was important to be really clear and what they wanted to achieve. As the piece was based on real situations and historical accounts, they were keen to include interview clips along with dramatic rehearsal footage. The objective of the trailer would be to appeal to potential audiences but also to venues and organisations with connections to the subject matter.

The Solution.

We based the trailer on the rehearsal shots - both action and emotional interactions between characters. Interview clips were added to re-enforce the realism and accuracy that the piece required. Filming was done fairly simply, using handheld, stabilised and tripod-mounted cameras. Some shots involved getting rich in amongst the actors in order to give a more immediate and dramatic feel. The trailer was also subtitled throughout.
