Last week Fundamental Theater Project hosted a Broadway memorial to celebrate the life and legacy of Sir Peter Shaffer, much-beloved English playwright and OSCAR winning screenwriter known for such iconic works as Equus, Amadeus, and Lettice and Lovage.
My production company Initiative | 26 handled all the projections for the production as well as two films; a Tribute Film and a Dance Film inspired by the Massacre of the Incas from Shaffer's The Royal Hunt for the Sun. The film was shot during a blizzard in Brooklyn, NYC and featured 50+ young performers.
For the Tribute Film, I got to travel from London to LA and back to NYC gathering tributes and personal stories from Sir Peter's close friends and collaborators including Sir Ian McKellen, Tim Curry, F. Murray Abraham, Simon Callow, Sir David Suchet, Sir Derek Jacobi and Daniel Radcliffe.
The memorial took place at the at the American Airlines Theater.
