By | Behind-the-Scenes, Cool Stuff, Personal Work, Video | No Comments

We recently blogged about a conceptual photoshoot for the experimental Melbourne Fringe Festival show Old Tech New Decks, where we created promo photos using a prop cello built out of crazy old retro technology. “But why just do stills photography,” we asked ourselves, “when we can also make a cool teaser VIDEO to promote the show!” So, once again working with a shoestring budget, we planned & executed a short motion project to make a fun trailer starring a few Old Tech items and the nostalgic…

Composer & performer Vanessa Nimmo asked us about creating promo photography for a Melbourne Fringe Festival show she was working on. Titled Old Tech, New Decks the performance was based around creating music using the nostalgic sounds of old technology: the screeching of a dial-up modem, the rhythmic clacking of typewriter keys, that distinctively ear-grating Nokia…

Wowzers – 2015 has kicked off with a huge start for us, and we can’t believe that it’s March already and we’ve been slow to post up details about some of the cool stuff we’ve been up to.

Cimarrón – Brisbane Metro Arts Promotional Photography

By | Behind-the-Scenes, Promotional Photography | No Comments

The Spanish word Cimarrón refers to that which cannot be tamed. The creator of the performance work Cimarrón is Sally Lewry, a theater maker based in Melbourne. She produces pieces that are raw and visceral and describes her work as “engaging with a deep sense of socio-political content and often driven by personal politic and the human condition.” Image Workshop photographer Sharon Blance has a particular flair for the performing arts and was excited to be asked to shoot the promotional photography…
