Theatre Backdrop

A few posts back, you got to see the eleven seven foot high airbrushed portraits I produced in six days. I’m tired just remembering it. Last weekend I got to see the final finished backdrop for the production “The Secret Garden” at Merritt Island High School.

The backdrop was actually the interior of the mansion. Each portrait beautifly framed. The portraits were airbrushed onto a sharktooth scrim. This type of scrim is opaque when lit from the front and becomes transparent when lit from the back. With this effect you then got to see the actors who portrayed their ghosts. The effect was brilliant.
