Sculpting Falmouth Acting students

Lighting a group is far more intimidating than lighting a single person. I find the process of organising people into places incredibly difficult. So I thought it would be easier for me to get my Acting models to engage with each other in movement so that from there, I could pick out dynamic moments that worked compositionally. At points that I saw something really strong I shouted at them to stop and rearranged them as I felt necessary and took a shot. We then all looked at the shot together and collectively made suggestions about how we could improve the composition. We all decided that something more organic worked better and looked less static so after finding a really strong shape between the five of them, I asked them to move in and out of that shape to try and create something that looked less staged, but that I had more control over. It was incredibly good fun and I’m grateful to the five of them for turning up, fully in black (!) and really involving themselves in what I was trying to achieve. I think they all look stunning. Thank you super movement people for your super movement skills. X
