Filming of dance production - Truro, Cornwall

Reportage photography - the making of "Natura" at Burrell Theatre

Cornwall based film-maker Geoff Mason Brown commissioned me to photograph the making of "Natura" a short film production showcasing the talents of a group of local dancers from Cornwall Dance School. The film was being shot at the Burrell Theatre in Truro and was to be shot in just 2 days. Due to a restricted budget Geoff called in a few favours - with professional hair & makeup artists, actors, use of the theatre, lighting & and sound engineer providing their services free of charge.

One of the great things about this film (besides from the stunning performances by the dancers) is that it was not made for profit but simply to give the stars a film to keep and use as promotional material should they wish to pursue dancing in the future. The finished piece may also be submitted for showing in the 2014 Cornwall Film Festival.
