Headlong Theatre

Richard III Trailer




Headlong approached us to create a conceptual trailer for their new production of Richard III which would be used on online and in cinema. The trailer needed to feel eerie, voyeuristic and bring out the psychological nature of the production.

They provided us with examples of unsettling mirror imagery and shots they wanted to include, we then worked on a storyboard that would reflect the concept they wanted. Once the storyboard was in place, we sourced the props including the costumes and the enchanting gold mirror.

For the shoot, we only had a short amount of time to capture everything, this included recording a voiceover and transforming the actor’s rehearsal space into a supernatural white void. To achieve the full unsettling nature of the video we used camera trickery with the mirror and mist filters.
