To create snappy, eye-catching online content to advertise The Yard's new plays ‘This Beautiful Future’, and 'Buggy Baby'.
As soon as we read the scripts for these plays, there were singular images and scenes that stuck firm in our minds. For 'This Beautiful Future', it was a young couple pillow-fighting, surrounded by the dangers of war. And for 'Buggy Baby', it was the brilliant image of a rabbit clutching onto a Nerf gun. For both trailers, we quickly scouted perfect locations, got our hands on some great actors, and set to work. Both trailers feature strong central images, around which we shot a load of extra footage - this gave us the ability to edit multiple short teasers, to release as the play approached. Edited to the unnerving sounds of electricity, distant bombs, and choirs, the final videos capture the tones of each play, without giving away any plot.
