Want to come join us and build beautiful things for the festivals?
WANTED: Set builders to join the The Lost Picture Show team, to take our glorious pop-up picture palace on the road to 2 festivals in August, and assist with pre-build in London 17-30 July.
THE LOST PICTURE SHOW:
Unique and innovative touring cinema project, which takes the audience on a trip back in time to the birth of cinema – encompassing a hand-built, sumptuously-designed cinema tent modelled on the picture palaces of old and a mixture of classic film and live performance.
Founded in 2009, we’ve previously run at Glastonbury, Big Chill, Bestival and Shambala festivals where we have had superb audience feedback. This year we are visiting:
Boomtown, 7-10 August
Shambala, 21-24 August
The set, made entirely from embroidered fabric and velvet on a metal structure is spectacular and intricate, and gets an amazing (sometimes dumbstruck) reaction from visitors.
To aid with build on site at the festivals and pre-build of some set elements in London 17-30 July at Blackhorse Workshop, Walthamstow.
The London build is primarily metalwork including welding. You need not necessarily have metalwork experience, but should have some aptitude for making things e.g. carpentry.
You may be looking to get more experience, or a chance to get out of town and into the fields to work on a great little project with a friendly team in a fun festival environment. Either way, the finished construction looks spectacular and would be a great addition to a portfolio.
Availability for some of the London build and at least one of the festivals is ideal.
We are a not-for-profit organisation, run by volunteers on a shoestring budget, so we cannot offer pay. However, all travel expenses are covered, you’ll be well fed and watered/cidered and of course free entry to the festivals.
