Filming site-specific theatre is easily the hardest theatre filming I do. Constantly changing light, moving from place to place and action that happens all around you are all things I have to keep in mind. This show presented an added challenge in that Golden Gate Park is notorious for car break-ins and theft so I had to keep a low profile and minimal gear. This is the shorter release of the sizzle reel with a longer one to follow once the show is done.
