If you've walked along Bristol's waterfront recently, you may have noticed the hive of activity outside the Bristol Old Vic theatre.

The cobbled thoroughfare is being transformed in to a large woodland scene, complete with a picnic area and grassy meadow, for the opening of the theatre's latest outdoor production - The Boy Who Cried Wolf! We last worked at the Old Vic in 2011, when construction group Galliford Try commissioned one of our Lobster Pots to capture the restoration of the buildings auditorium, and we were delighted to be asked by the theatre to document their latest production - especially since Lobster HQ is just a short walk away! This time, we've installed a Lobster Pot in the offices directly overlooking the area where the work is taking place - giving us, and the client, a great view of the proceedings. [embed width="620" height="348"][/embed] Stage construction can happen very quickly, and the versatility of the Lobster Pot means that we're able to work with every client to create a shooting schedule that matches any type of build. During the project, our virtual viewing platform - Lobster Vision - lets the production team follow the whole build from start to finish, on any device and in any location, by providing instant access to full-quality images - perfect for promotional material! Here's the first shot from the camera, post-installation (1:45pm on June 28th) - …and here's how the build's progressing (4:00pm on July 3rd) - "The Boy Who Cried Wolf! (…and other stories from Michael Morpurgo’s Aesop’s Fables)" opens on July 13th, and tickets start from as little as £10 if you're an early booker!
