Dramatic tension Imagine a theatre troupe that tours through time… Vince Hewitt did just that, and it resulted in this brilliant image of the month
After suggesting the theme Time-Travelling Theatre Troupe himself, Vince Hewitt realised he didn’t actually have any ideas for his own entry.
“I started scribbling random shapes, as usual, hoping something would appear,” he says. “After overworking a few ideas that I really didn’t like it became apparent that I’d have to start from scratch. I liked the caravan idea, so I thought an old horse-drawn version with modern tech. The image grew from there.”
Vince’s finished work is one full of narrative, and demonstrates deft use of lighting – both on the face of the troupe leader and the characters gathered around the campfire. His perseverance paid off.
“I’m glad I decided on this image. I like the atmosphere of a group of time-travelling thespians relaxing and planning their next move.” MYFX title: Time-Travelling Theatre Troupe Winner: Vince Hewitt Gallery: http://bit.ly/mid-scrawl All Entries: http://ifxm.ag/theatretroupe
