The Challenge

We were asked to produce a short documentary capturing the journey and performances of a large scale promenade theatre production of The Merchant Of Venice in Barking.

The Solution

Across several visits we filmed the actors rehearsing, the location scouting, production meetings and behind the scenes build up leading to the performance week. during the performance week we followed the entire performance with multiple cameras, capturing both the production itself and the audience engagement. with interviews filmed along the way with all key cast and crew we were able to tell the behind the scenes story of the largest outdoor theatre piece Barking has seen this century.

The Result

The Client's Thoughts

I think it’s great, really clear and captures the buzz around the production.
