Freelancing in London for nine years, Lisa covered music and theatrical performances at the Reading Festival, Glastonbury Festival, Electric Picnic Festival in Ireland, the Sonar Festival in Barcelona and the Benicassim Festival in Spain.

Check the Documentation reel below to see recent work with Castlemaine State Festival, Castlemaine Circus, Federation University, Artplay and other local theatre and community events.

Lisa likes to work alongside Leonie Van Eyk, who also has extensive experience covering live events and processes.

Documentation Reel

Event Coverage

We design and plan coverageĀ of live events and performances that are sensitive to budget and scale, and also to the intended audience and expected project outcomes.

We encourage all artists and event producers to ‘factor in’ documentation costs as part of their overall budgets – especially for funding acquittals and next event promotions.

Process Documentation

Capturing the development of a new theatre work or collaboration takes more than being a fly on the wall; understanding and sensitivity to the artists’ ideas, emotions and processes is vital. We produce documents that intuitively reflect artists’ intentions and explorations.

See below for links to recent examples, Castlemaine Circus’ ATOPIA project and the Exquisite Corpse interactive animation workshops at Artplay in Melbourne.

Promo Packages

Experienced live event producers know the value of documentation – and successful companies allocate a little more in their budgets for the creation of an edited promotional video.

Targeted audiences, key stakeholders and funding bodies love dynamic, short and snappy promos.
