The Red Lady Magic Show is a performance/video work, currently in progress. This piece was intended to be fully realised and shown at "Run Off The Mill" (the most recent live event set up and hosted by Rachel Lonsdale, Kyran Gilbert and myself) however, unfortunately, due to lack of space and equipment in my current working environment I have been unable to fully execute this work. The primary issues being space in which to erect my make-shift home green screen set-up, the quality of lighting available to me which makes creating a convincing green screen illusion very difficult, and finally, the prohibitively slow rendering speed of my home computer - which unfortunately makes the process of editing video works almost comically slow.
Preliminary screen test/experiment for Red Lady Magic Show
Key influences on this work include:
Drag artist Sasha Velour
