Publicity photo Case Study: Open Studios & Dance Spot
BEAUPIX shot the publicity images for Fort Point Arts Community Open Studios 2012 and an interactive public art project Dance Spot by Boston artist Elisa Hamilton in 2012. The photographs were used on publicity posters displayed around Boston, submitted to media as press kits, and projected as an animation on the giant outdoor video billboard in front of the Boston Convention & Exhibition Center (BCEC).
Some of the Open Studio publicity photographs were shot on Polaroid instant films and digitized to create classic artist look and warm feel produced by grains. Some other images were shot digitally, and converted into black-and-white images, with coloring scheme inspired by the Blue Note album jacket designs.
Both of these publicity projects were collaboration with a designer and animator Joanne Kaliontzis of Studio51 Design.
