This week we shot a poster image for the Royal Exchange theatre; it's the blood and guts of William Shakespeare's Henry V





Actor Elliot Cowan turned it on brilliantly for these dramatic shots of Henry V helped by some nicely timed death metal appearing on the studio iPod and copious quantities of stage blood and sweat. Extra thanks to my assistant Gan who had to spend an extra hour getting the 'blood' out the studio office carpet.

A thoroughly enjoyable shoot.
