videoRambert Dance in Peaky Blinders - The Redemption of Thomas Shelby Trailer by Sebastian Whyte
Sebastian Whyte directs the beautifully-crafted promo for Rambert Dance in Peaky Blinders - The Redemption of Thomas Shelby.Yes, that's right. Not only is the final series of the TV show about to hit our screens, there is a new live dance theatre event that's written by Peaky Blinders creator Steven Knight, and choreographed and directed by Rambert's artistic director Benoit Swan Pouffer. Whyte's visual takes the form of a trailer for the event, and with familiar backdrops and characters, it serves as a powerful introduction to the extended Peaky Blinders story, and promises to be true to both the TV show and the Rambert brand. "The idea behind the trailer was to create a campaign that sits comfortably beside the Peaky Blinders TV series, paying homage but not coming across like a tribute band!" notes Whyte. "Research for the project took many shapes, from in-depth discussions into cameras, lenses and the joys of tungsten light, to the guns used, set design; and colouring."The result is a trailer that transcends you through the Peaky Blinders lifestyle, with drama, tension, love, tenderness and a battle."
