topic icon Music video filming for Theatre Giant upcoming production of Houdini

Mark Brindle spent a day filming a complex music video promo in Bournemouth with Theatre Giant using a Canon 7D DSLR video rig and our Porta Jib.

The video will be used to promote the up-coming West End musical currently being developed by the company.

The song, called 'Immortal' has been written for and will be performed in the show. The rough cut edit will be carried out by Stuart Brennan, who appears in the video alongside actor Ramin Karimloo and actress Lucy Jones.

Maniac Films will be completing the edit with colour grading and any other post effects work that is required.

Directed by Peter Snee and with Mark Brindle from Maniac Films acting as Director of Photography (DOP), Jib grip and lighting camerman, the video was shot over three locations in one day, including the Pier Theatre, the Pier itself and a hotel in nearby Poole where the underwater escape took place. See a few frame grabs from the rushes below:
