Pippi was a fun and silly blast, and now that it's wrapped up Anna's hitting the ground running with her next project, the bard's infamous "Scottish Play," Macbeth.
I've been working on music for the show on and off with other projects for almost two months and it is now my main focus. Saturday, before Sunday's last show for Pippi Longstocking, we started going to work on a concept trailer for Anna's primal urban take on the classic. After shooting, recording voice overs, setting a few things on fire, editing, and sound mixing I uploaded this promo a couple nights ago to YouTube.
It was a collaborative effort. She gave me a list of shots she wanted and a basic structure and then we set out to shoot it. We were up until 3:30AM shooting the thing like madmen.
I think what I like most about this video over any other we've done
together for GTP or otherwise is how much of a complete merging of our
styles it shows. Some shots didn't work, so I added some footage and tweaked the original concept to be a bit more trippy. Some of my images didn't work at first either, then she did voice overs and I mixed them and with each exchange and layer everything started coming together as an effective whole where individual elements hadn't.
Needless to say, if you are interested in auditioning and being a part of this madness, head on over to Gorilla Theater Productions and check it out!
