Just wanted to say congratulations to Belvoir Theatre for their nominations in this year’s Helpmann Awards for their production of Angels In America, which I photographed for them last year – well, I did Part 1: Millennium Approaches, anyway!
I really loved this production a lot; oddly enough, I wound up seeing Angels two and a half times last year, having booked tickets for the full show at Belvoir before finding out I’d be photographing Part 1 as well, and when I found out it was on in Toronto a month later, I went to see that as well. I know, I got carried away – but honestly, I enjoyed everything about Belvoir’s version better: cast, costumes, set, sound design, lighting, the lot. So, I’m glad to see it make the list this week.
This was one of those times where the only opportunity to capture the show was during a schools matinee with an audience, working from a seat in the theatre without moving around; so it was a perfect time to use my Jacobsen Sound Blimp to make the camera as quiet as possible, and let both the actors and the audience focus on the show.
Here’s a few images from that shoot, including some of Robyn Nevin, who’s also nominated for Best Female Actor in a Supporting Role. Best of luck for the awards, everyone!
