Halloween means two things to me – controlling the amount of sweets my two young children consume in one evening and the Spooky Ship at the ss Great Britain.
Each year I’m blown away by the theatrical transformations created by the Bath Academy of Media Makeup and the incredible acting skills from the Bristol Old Vic Theatre School students. Year on year they’ve grown the immersive show, improving on what seems to be the un-improvable.
Lighting wise this was all kept very simple as time was a bit precious (isn’t it always). Main light was a Pixapro PIKA200 with a Westcott Halo softbox, second light is another PIKA200 with the round head and a red gel.
