A Doll’s House E-trailer

Concept | Videography | Brand application | Photography | Art direction

Henrik Ibsen’s ‘A Doll’s House’ was just one of the many exciting featured plays brought to life by Sherman Theatre in 2015.

Shocking audiences on its first outing, this play – and its figurehead, Nora Helmer – has been called ‘a symbol throughout the world, for women fighting for liberation and equality’.

Revived in a full-blooded production by director Rachel O’Riordan (Iphigenia In Splott), A Doll’s House has lost none of its power to provoke.

This is the story of Nora, loving wife and doting mother in a middle-class household, seemingly content until a figure from her past returns seeking recompense, and Nora realises her life is not her own…

How we helped

Having produced previous e-trailers for Romeo & Juliet and Arabian Nights, we jumped at the chance to produce one for this renowned play.

Playing on the themes of the production, we aimed to produce a video that was captivating but also eerie and distortedly confusing. We created this by combing footage and stop-motion imagery to produce a jarring and memorable trailer. We overlaid this with music from the show itself, by Simon Slater.
