Hello My name is Luke Richards. I am a 22 year old actor/ writer from Manchester, England. In 2015 I joined a program to work with the cities respected theatre festivals, 24/7 THEATRE.
The event showcases new performances from talented talent in the Northwest and around the globe. The festival has gone strength to strength since its first opening back in 2004.
in 2015 I decided to be involved with the festivals, Foot in the Door Scheme, a program that allows participants the opportunity to work alongside and be involved within the festival. Taking on new different roles from being a producer of one of the productions being performed to working with other companies that are associated with the festival like children's theatre company Colour the Clouds to Film making company, Dreamscope based in Salford Quays.
For this year's festival I was selected to work alongside Dreamscope in filming elements of the festival, whether it be filming the rehearsals of each performance, interviewing the cast and crew of each piece of creating the teaser trailers and promo vids for both the shows and festivals.
On this blog I will be detailing my progress working with Dreamscope from meeting the team, the planning of the production and the actions and choices that were made before and after filming.
