Project: Septimus the Giant

Client:  Shrewsbury Morris and Thingumajig Theatre, funded by The Arts Council & Shropshire Town Council.
Location:  Shropshire; for promotion countrywide.

Brief:  To produce two films.  The first documenting Thingumajig Theatre’s workshop as they built the giant.   The two week workshop attracted local people who learnt an array of new puppet making skills. The second was to film the performance.  Septimus and Shrewsbury Morris' joyous parade and a merry dance through the streets of Shrewsbury. 

The workshop film was 12 mins in length and was cut down into 4 short films and released over a week on social media.  A final 3 minute film was made of the performance.


Results: The films were released on Twitter, Facebook and You Tube and so far have received over 50,000 views (Oct 2019)
