Press Release from TEAK
Reinforcing their status as an incubator of up-and-coming talent, TEAK has successfully ushered the first live-action television directing job for accomplished still photographer Kate Powers. TEAK's Sean Shafer handled all editing for the two :30s, which promoted SHN - the official site of Broadway in San Francisco - and ran during the Tony Awards.
The spots thread together a series of black-and-white testimonials from passionate theatergoers, from the woman who's seen Wicked 18 times to the man who keeps a box stuffed with the ticket stubs of every Broadway show he's ever seen, creating a dynamic portrait of SHN's diverse and passionate fan base.
"Kate's gift for evoking raw, entertaining performances out of real people shines in this campaign," noted EP Greg Martinez. "Her keen attention to both composition and lighting help to highlight the beautiful, natural quality of the theatergoers."Credits:
