Making War Horse.

Just under 3 minutes of great footage exploring the behind the scenes making of War Horse. This will appeal to theatre lovers and prop designers alike! When getting a good look at the building of the puppet horse, the movement of it is incredibly accurate and the design is obviously incredibly well thought out. Based in The National Theatre in London, the play has been running now since 2007 and has proven to be one of the most popular plays to visit in London.

Brighton Festival / 3 May – 25 May 2014

‘Brighton Festival has been at the forefront… an arts festival that makes connections with the real world’ The Times

Brighton Festival is an annual celebration of music, theatre, dance, circus, art, film, literature, debate, outdoor and family events – taking place in venues both familiar and unusual across Brighton & Hove for three weeks every May.

Now in its 49th year, Brighton Festival is an innovative commissioning and producing festival, which continues to win critical acclaim for its ambitious and daring programme. As England’s biggest curated mixed arts festival, Brighton Festival attracts some of the innovative artists and companies (and some of the most adventurous audiences) from the UK and around the world.

In 2014, we welcome the critically-acclaimed choreographer Hofesh Shechter as our sixth Guest Director. Previous Guest Directors have included poet, writer, broadcaster and former Children’s Laureate Michael Rosen; actress and human rights campaigner Vanessa Redgrave; Burmese democracy leader Aung San Suu Kyi; renowned visual artist Anish Kapoor; and celebrated musician Brian Eno.

this video is a mini biography of the choreographers work to date.
Hofesh graduated from the Jerusalem Academy for Dance and Music before moving to Tel Aviv to join the world renowned Batsheva Dance Company, where he worked with artistic director Ohad Naharin and other choreographers including Wim Vandekeybus, Paul Selwyn-Norton, Tero Saarinen, and Inbal Pinto. Hofesh began drum and percussion studies whilst in Tel Aviv and continued later in Paris at the Agostiny College of Rhythm. Subsequently, he began experimenting and developing his own music while participating in various projects in Europe involving dance, theatre and body-percussion. In 2002 Hofesh arrived in the UK.

LEO | The Anti-Gravity Show

LEO from Toby Wegner is a solo theatre piece that has been performed around the world and premiered at Edinburgh Fringe Festival in 2011. The act is a playful but brilliantly performed take on the idea of this mans world being disconnected from the laws of physics.

Film and Creative Inspiration, Frank Sauer

A short clip for inspiration, the film Director Frank Sauer has done some great clips and for creatives they are a great watch. They include clips for Redbull and Abarth, as well as his own Short Films. The angles, closeups and other methods he use are incredible, a lot of his clips feature well filmed interviews and pauses. He uses a lt of motion in his clips, like dance, free running and sports. I find clips like this are a great source of inspiration if you’re having some down time, or need to take a break from what ever you’re working on.

Revolution! Unrest on set of ‘Les Misérables’ as hair and make-up artists stage own uprising
Les Misérables may chronicle a revolution by idealistic Parisians in 1832, but producers of this year’s big-budget film adaptation of Victor Hugo’s classic story were embarrassed when furious hair and make-up artists staged an uprising of their own on set.
