WANTED: Set builders to join us taking our glorious pop-up picture palace on the road to two festivals in August.
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, sumptuous cinema modelled on the picture palaces of old and a mix of classic film and live performance.
Founded in 2009, we’ve previously run at Glastonbury, Bestival and Boomtown festivals where we have had superb audience feedback. This year we are visiting:
Wilderness, 6-9 August (on site 2-11 Aug)
Shambala, 27-30 August (on site 23 Aug–1 Sept)
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.
Aid with build on site at the festivals. Most of the set is pre-built in parts, so there’s not a lot of carpentry involved, but it’s a complex construction. You need to have experience in building things, a detailed eye, and some degree of physical strength.
You may be looking to get more experience, or a chance to get out 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.
You may be available for one or other of the festivals, or both.
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. It’s also a lot of fun!
