Innovative creative consultancy
It’s not just theatre that needs bespoke magic solutions. The same innovative and creative thinking can also be applied to the needs of business and private clients.
Making an actor disappear, float, or even burst into flames are just a few of the challenges Richard Pinner has solved over the years.
In fact, one of the first shows Richard worked on contained the stage direction…
“…changes into an orange blob and floats out the window.”
The actor, in this case, was Rupert Everett and the show was Some Sunny Day at London’s Hampstead Theatre.
Here are some more examples of bespoke magic consultancy.
