Sometime last year we decided to film a couple of scenes from Rob Hockley’s play Darkness in the Night as a marketing resource. Then (after we had finished filming of course) we thought .. why not make a movie style trailer instead. So .. after a script, a narrator, a soundtrack and many hours of trying to piece it together from the shots we actually had available, this is the result. I think it’s fair to say that after watching you will probably have no idea what the play is actually about … but it is fun.
