Turn of The Screw

Mercury Theatre, Colchester

The Brief.

The client was keen for the trailer to be short dramatic and moody. It needed to capture the tension of the show along with its simmering malevolence. The trailer would use footage taken during the final dress rehearsal along with some shots captured from directly on stage.

The Solution.

The dress rehearsal was filmed in full, using two cameras. One camera was set up as a fixed wide shot, with the second being used for close-ups and to follow the action. The on-stage shots allowed us to get really close to the actors which ensured the maximum in dramatic tension and subtle facial expressions. All of the best shots were cut together to synchronise with the music, resulting in a gripping and beautiful-looking trailer.
