Having worked with White Cobra last summer as part of their team for their summer tour of Twelfth Night (prompt, marketing and understudy!) I leapt at the chance to work with them again this year.
This Spring they’re presenting The Lonesome West by Martin McDonagh. A dark comedy of sorts which tells the story of two brothers who absolutely can’t get on. The brief was to show these brothers as children, squabbling over a toy.
White Cobra founder Kate Billingham directed the shoot, and she had a really strong idea of what she’d like. The boys themselves were fantastic and took direction really well (especially as it was so cold!) and managed to look occasionally quite angry with each other through all the laughing! We had the luxury of shooting on the actual set for the production which had been built in the rehearsal space.
I love the way the images came out, and it was a pleasure to turn it into the poster for the tour too.
I’ll be working with White Cobra on their projects for 2020, including an acting role with them later in the year, and I can’t wait to get the ball rolling on their marketing for the tour too.
