The Passion - Young Critic Review

There was something different to walking along Aberavon Promenade on Good Friday afternoon: an electric atmosphere was building as hundreds of people headed to the furthest end of the promenade. It was to be the first of a weekend of events as part of The Passion, a play of enormous proportions.

The Passion - #NTW13 - A transmedia production

 

What started with an idea to tell the story of 'The Passion' online in real time through-out the weekend, grew into one of the most exciting campaigns I have ever worked on.

Michael and Bill's vision to use the town as a set, with the idea to, use it's radio stations, fly poster sites, graffiti artists and video makers to tell the story allowed us to really push the boat out in terms of our thinking.

Passion

My Mrs, Kirsten Jones, and I saw the opening of Passion on the beach in Port Talbot on Friday afternoon.  What a fantastic experience.  We loved it.  To have got such a large scale production together with of necessity no practical dress runs, well ... what can you say!?  The set up with the town's hierarchy meeting the dark ones was ace, then the bomber, the appearance of christ, the sun beating down, the all round excellence of the acting, it was wonderful.  Michael Sheen is not just a film… Continue

A Dawn Beginning

The Passion - NTW13 - began at dawn today with an unpublicised - but very well attended - scene on the far end of Port Talbot beach.  For the last week a camp of 'strangers' has been living in the dunes and this morning before dawn they processed to the sea and our story began.  You can find out more about what happened - and follow the events of the weekend as they unfold at our special NTW13 site: port-talbot.com  Bear in mind that - while… Continue
