The Damaged Duo wanted new promo photos reflecting their motto: “To entertain and infuriate”. Their work is character-driven, using facial expression to create a mood and add humor. The photos needed to show off their physical skills as well as capture facial expressions and their quirky sense of humour.
We scouted a suitable warehouse that met technical requirements: a large indoor space with a minimum 7 metre high ceiling, including a beam we could rig from rated to a 2.5-tonne load.
Multiple setups were executed including a mini portrait studio so we could capture static promo shots in hair & makeup before each act.
Brence’s lighting design for the aerial acts used cross-lighting to highlight the shape of each pose with a soft fill so that the all-important facial expressions were visible.
