Create a deeply and immersive experience for guests at Goodwood Revival. Transform the airport hanger into a space that allows for people to fully engulfed in a Sky Cinema filming experience from the 1950’s – Earls Court Studios was born.
A completely immersive set with 48 actors, 60 shows over the weekend and 7 dynamic stages designed including 1 with a revolving stage. Guests entered the sound stage in the 1950’s amidst a live filming. Actors played directors, camera operators and film crew. The room was set up so that each set flowed into the next performance, meaning guests could spend an hour in the space and be moving around the room and seeing new performances constantly.
Watching the smiles on the faces of the audience as they were taken deeper into the story in front of their eyes. Guests felt as though they were a part of this story, just as much as the actors were. From dancing scenes that pulled audience members into the film to allowing them to feel as though they really were behind the scenes on a live set.
In between performances the actors mingled with the crowd, still in character, drumming up excitement for the next performance and conversing with the crowd as though they were extras in the film too.
This was all finished off with a photo-booth, allowing guests to take away a memento of their day on set at Earls Court.
The beauty of this project was in the immersion.
