The Aliens

We got the chance to work with What It Is Productions again on their latest theatrical outing. In the past we've done work for such projects as Ligature Marks and Nighthawk Rules which both premiered at the Edmonton Fringe Festival. The Aliens, is their first foray into a main season production as part of Theatre Network's Roxy Performance Series, and we couldn't be happier to be a part of it. 

The main poster design was a fun one to shoot. As the show takes place behind a cafe, we wanted to capture several of the moments of the show in an overlapping composite image. 

They open tonight! Got check them out. Details below.

The Roxy on Gateway - 8529 Gateway Blvd.
Presented as part of Theatre Network's Roxy Performance Series

Featuring: Chris W. Cook, Evan Hall & Michael Vetsch

Two best friends in their early 30s hang out behind a Vermont coffee house to play music and discuss Bukowski when an impressionable young employee of the shop stumbles upon them. The shy young man becomes enamored with the pair, and the two 30-somethings set out to teach him “everything they know.” The Aliens is a story about the humour and heartbreak of growing up.

Director: Taylor Chadwick
Production Designer: Liza Xenzova
Musical Director/Sound Design: Brian Bergum
Stage Manager: Andrea Murphy

The Believers

dbphotographics here with yet another theatre poster. This time we had the pleasure of working with Nancy McAlear of the MadFandango Theatre Collective to help promote their latest production of The Believers.

When we met with Nancy to discuss the project, the discussion surrounded the idea of negative space. There's an element of something looming that the characters in the show are missing. We are pumped with how this session turned out and the feedback we've been getting. Can't wait to check out the show. If you are interested in seeing it, here are the details.

Our hearts broke the morning we heard of the Roxy fire.

It became very important to help in any way we could. When we found out that Human Loser, the company that had their opening night scheduled the day the fire broke out, was going to be holding a one night only read of Cheerleader! at the Timms Centre for the Arts, we knew if was where we could jump in.

It was a stripped down version of the show but the crowd was enthralled. Here are a few images from the night.

A Bronte Burlesque


Well, the ladies at Send in the Girls Burlesque are at it again. This time, it is a remount of their sold out and held over show, A Bronte Burlesque.

As usual, we got tasked with creating all of their visual material. This show having a new cast required us to do some re-shoots and create new images, featuring all four Bronte siblings. We tried to maintain the feel of the original shoot, while giving it a fresh look at the same time.

Here is what we came up for them. If you are interested in seeing the show, the information is listed below.
