Something a little different for my readers.
I work at Theatre Royal Stratford East in the Marketing department and have been lucky enough to flex my creative muscles thanks to my manager.
For our last two pantos I have been able to do a behind the scenes costumes piece for our Panto programmes. This entails for a couple of weeks working closely with the costume (and set) designer Harriet Barsby, which I thoroughly enjoyed.
So after checking with Harriet shes happy for me to do this project and letting her know what my deadline is, I send through a short design brief to the designers letting them know what I am looking to do and also a couple of examples.
This is then followed by the questions I will be sending through to Harriet an also copy for the page.
As I am a visual person I also send through a mock up of how I would like the page to look.
And here is the final page which I am very proud of:
For Robin Hood it was very similar, using the artwork we already have I sent through a designer brief to the designers and explained that I was doing a behind the scenes costume pieces like the year before.
and here is how I wanted it laid out, which I sent through to the designers:
And again after little big of back and forth with the designers here is the final page:
Proud of these pages and really enjoyed working on them, it even got mentioned in West End Wilma’s review for Robin Hood.
Hope you enjoyed this insight.
