Lighting and Video Background for The Ruby Revue at the Texas Theater
I've been lucky to have worked on several projects with Elisa Davis of the Ruby Revue. Most memorable was the Dallas Burlesque Festival earlier this year in which we were nominated for a best of Dallas award.Elisa wanted to shoot a video and asked me to help with lighting and some background footage.
So, we went back to the stage at The Texas Theater , they recently acquired a movie screen . Elisa and I decided to project old black and white motion picture logos on the screen behind the dancers.I also projected paparazzi camera men snapping photos of the girls.
The choreography was intense and the dancers had a lot of attitude . Elisa has her own take on burlesque and it shows in the routine.Can't wait to see the video.
