Royal Exchange Theatre 2017-2018 season campaign

Gu and team shot the 2017 season campaign for Royal Exchange Theatre back in May, for Jubilee, Cosmic Scallies and Our Town

The day saw crew rigging at 7.30am at Studio Manchester, involving set builds for Jubilee and Cosmic Scallies, before moving onto roof top location at dusk to photograph 11 individual portrait and Manchester skyline for Our Town. A long and productive day was wrapped at 9pm.

We adapted concept change in the post production for Our Town, swapping dusky sky for a deep night, with addition of the moon to resonate the original artwork. The individual portraits then fine tuned to match the evening light.

Nothing is more rewarding than a happy client!
