Glass Menagerie Young Vic

Video Design for director Joe Hill-Gibbons’, production of Tennessee Williams’ classic play. I mimicked the light reflections from a beautiful [real] mirror ball using projectors. This enabled me to create a beautiful transitions where mirror ball’s lights slowly shrank down into the confines of Laura’s table of Glass trinkets. Simple, but effective.  Which we like. An outstanding show, with an excellent production team. Jeremy Herbert’s design was extraordinary. He made that show what it was.
