I was commissioned to take the photographs for the upcoming show to be used for its corresponding artwork/advertisements of The Compleat Works of William Shakespeare (Abridged) (Revised) production led by Professor of Drama Kim Frederick. Some backstory: what a journey this past decade has been… the last time I saw this production was 10 years ago while a student at Del Mar College which was also coincided with the last year these three (Kim, Carl Yowell, and Lavert Rodgers) performed this whirlwind production, and trust me I’ve been a fan EVER SINCE THEN. Now 7 years removed from my completion of an undergraduate degree in Chemistry from University of Texas at Austin, I’ve returned to my hometown as a professional photographer/videographer and, ultimately, storyteller. Now charged with capturing their likeness for their advertisement, I took it upon myself to create a short promotional video. I couldn’t be happier with the groups participation and how much I can’t help but crack up every time I watch it. Shot out to Carl for suggesting that we go with a slower tempo of speech as opposed to my original vision of a rapid paced tempo… as you’ll see in the show. I suggest you watch it multiple times to catch what each person says… and as always ENJOY and thanks for stopping by.
ps Inspiration of video is from a famous Beatles album cover “with the beatles”….
