The StagePlay Academy runs week-long acting, dancing and singing courses in the school summer holidays in Reading, Berkshire.
I spent three days with the "StagePlayers" and really wanted to get across the warm, fun nature of the academies.
I shot the film with the following gear:
Canon 5D II, Canon 600D, Sony HX9V
Canon 70-200mm f/2.8L IS II (sold halfway through the shoot!), Canon 70-200mm f/4L IS, Canon 16-35mm f/2.8L (Mark 1), Samyang 85mm f/1.4, Samyang 35mm f/1.4, Canon 18-55mm IS.
Rode Videomic Pro
Zoom H1 Portable Recorder
Home-made 50cm slider
77mm variable ND filter and step-up rings
Yongnuo intervalometer (for the "chairs" timelapse)
