Pro Tip: For the most part, it wouldn’t be economically feasible to taker over a cinema for a photographer or filmmaker. Renting a theater could be very expensive, but a local playhouse, school auditorium, or well-dressed studio could be the perfect substitute, as long as you can re-create the right atmosphere.

Casting Considerations: Age, Gender, and Race Diversity. Authenticity and diversity will play an important role in the success of your shoot. “Real” body types recommended.
