Theatre Production students prove they’re anything but fish out of water
When you’re a Theatre Production student preparing for a musical called Big Fish, you’ve got expect that you’re about to create something of mythic proportions.
And students from the Faculty of Fine Arts and Communications students lived up to that expectation when they created a set to bring the larger-than-life stories told by the lead character, travelling salesman Edward Bloom.
As you can see in the time-lapse video below, it was no small feat. Shot over 12 days, the three-minute video captures everything from students setting up the enormous wooden trees and hanging the backdrops to painting the stage and rehearsing the show.
