Occasionally a show I design requires some legitimate filmmaking to create a sequence for projections. Here are a few examples.
For the production of Moss Hart's Light Up The Sky,
presented by Emerson Stage at the Paramount Theater,
director Melia Bensussen asked if I could create a short
film to present as the entreacte and to introduce the three
characters playing Shriners into the auditorium. We wanted
to pay homage to the Boston theater area and create a
little backstory for these characters. This was projected
onto the painted scrim wall that all of my projection
design content was presented.

The musical "Rent" calls for a short film sequence to play
during the final chorus representing the work of the main
character over the course of the play.
This is the short film I directed to incorporate into my
projection design for the show.
