Deadmans Lane 1 - The Burning of the Woman in White with a Terrible Smile - A Projection

This was filmed on the Theale Green Community School Field.
It is part of the play "Deadmans Lane" which was based on local legends and ghost stories around Theale in Berkshire.

The play contained a mix of live action and film, inspired by Forkbeard Fantasy and their ideas of "Crossing the Celluloid Divide" this scene saw the actors leave the stage and simultaneously appear on screen. The reason for the three piano shrieks on the soundtrack is that they act as cues for action. The third strike cues the entrance of The Faceless Man and the Priest. This meant that we could do a witch burning on stage without contravening health and safety (we had to be careful when we filmed of course!)
The witch is put into the crate on stage and then the crate is burnt on screen!
The music is by Music for Zombies.
The play was produced by Exiled Theatre.
