So here is a film set prototype, mock type set. The set is supposed to look deliberately shoddy, but here it just looks a bit shit. I imagine it will look more how I want it on a bigger scale.
all of the sets would be lightweight, and i like the idea of the usherette being the person that moves the sets around.
I originally thought of this as a form of on stage performance, but I feel setting this up as an actual performance would be too much effort, such as advertising it, selling tickets and getting an audience into the theatre for something that would essentially be a 4 minuet performance. So I think what I’ll do is record from a couple of cameras at the same time from different positions, whilst the action happens in real time. I could also then use this idea if there is ever some form of event where this could be performed with other performances.
I’m not really sure about the likelihood of being able to use an actual theatre but at the moment this I what I want to do. I’m also not too sure how theatres look striped down from sets and such, but I imagine they have simple brick walls, and hopefully painted white and hopefully the paint work wouldn’t be perfect.
the only 'normal' looking one, wears a simple top that ends below the waist and simple black pants. Messy hair.
Large white t-shirt flowy and dramatic. Very tight black jeans, Black greasy hair.
