SAE Liverpool second year students Emily May Turner and Lucy Ledger’s promotional video for the recent production of War Horse at the Liverpool Empire theatre has sparked a real social media buzz.
The theatre used the video as part of their promotional campaign on Facebook and it reached over 50,000 views, drumming up huge amounts of enthusiasm for the five star rated show.
The pair were recommended to do the video by SAE Liverpool’s student recruitment officer Graham Lysaght, due to their already impressive portfolio of work including video advertisements and live lounges.
Emily May said: “My biggest inspiration for the video was War Horse itself, as it’s a show I have always wanted to see on stage. Being given the opportunity to not only watch it but produce the video for it was really exciting and I couldn’t wait to make it”.
Despite being a tight turnaround, the students managed to use their time successfully. Only able to film during the interval and after the show, they still managed to capture some beautiful shots and even cordoned off an area outside in order to interview people coming out of the show.
