Getting seen at Edinburgh Fringe

31st July 2012 by Dan H

We really do love Edinburgh Fringe here at MOO, especially with Andrea and Bec from our UK office heading up and performing over the coming weeks, and we we’re looking at ways to let all the performers know that they could pick up a packet of MiniCards to help promote themselves and their shows.

Once the concept for the first ad had been agreed, Felix disappeared to bring the idea to life. After a day of paper cutting, setups and lighting arrangements, he reappeared and Rob was able to get the perfect picture for us to use:

Our second ad saw Bec being drafted in to have her face painted like a mime and photographed with one of our MiniCards. Here’s Bec’s own thoughts on the session:

“I had to sit incredibly still for about 3 hours as the mime make-up was applied. I think it’s the longest I’ve ever gone without talking – which was appropriate for the look. I thought it would be a quick face-paint job, but because the lights were so hot, I had to have a lot of layers applied and reapplied so it didn’t melt all over the place. No one likes a melty-mime. That’s the stuff nightmares are made of.”

We also thought it would be fun to see if anyone spots these ads out in the wild, so tweet a picture of of one of the ads to us @overheardatmoo and we’ll pick a winner at random to get some free MOO goodies and tickets to Bec Hill’s show at Edinburgh Fringe on Sunday 5 August!

If you’re ordering cards for Edinburgh Fringe, you can choose to pick them up from MOO on the 18th at the Surviving Actors’ event. Just look for the option on the shipping page in the checkout.

Break a leg Andrea and Bec (don’t really, it might hurt), we’re sure you’ll have everyone in Edinburgh laughing as much as you do here at MOO HQ!
