One of my contracts is to provide media call coverage for the Citadel Theatre. Whenever a new play opens, I shot the media call and provide footage to any of the news stations that was unable to attend. I also edit the footage I shot into a promotional trailer for the Citadels website. The challenge is shooting one scene twice and hoping for continuity from the actors so I am able to edit the two angles together flawlessly. In live theatre, this rarely happens but I always find a way to make it work.
This years season just started and the first play is Billy Bishop Goes To War.
