This one was taken with a few weeks back with an iPhone. Michelle DuBarry and Fontaine were performing at George’s Play and I was invited to check out the proceedings. I was editing my short film Diva that night, which features Michelle, and ended up missing most of the performance, but I managed to catch a few numbers.
This shot was captured with my iPhone’s built-in camera application. The vignetting is the result of stage ligthing and not the use of a vintage film/lo-fi camera app like Hipstamatic. For some reason, the backdrop makes me think of Brighton Beach. Perhaps that’s a sign that I’ve watched far too many British coming of middle age dramas on PBS.
