Julian ClaryShades of Gay
I have worked on Julian Clary projects since 1988, some with Paul Merton, such as Sticky Moments, Terry and Julian ( sitcom) and panto's for TV, most directed by John Henderson and produced by Toni Yardley.
Terry and Julian featured sets that theatrically transform in real time. The theatre offers a counter-weighted flying system, whilst a TV studio is limited to dead weights. Tricky.
The title sequence featured a Sindy or Barbie Doll house as I love kitsch. Watch episodes at 4oDComodey
Mr & Mrs gameshow sets (1998): the set was formed from translucent PVC quilted inflatables, heart shaped entrance and staircase, the contestant sat in a soundproof pod. Lycra-covered lanterns rose to reveal prizes on curvaceous podiums for that 1950s feeling of luxury....
Theatre Tours: include My Boyfriends Back, 1990s, Lord of The Mince,2002, Position Vacant ( Apply Within ) 2012.
One set featured a large fluorescent UFO spaceship which flew in and opened up with dancing shimmying jelly fish costumes...
1995, I designed a giant motorised stiletto shoe, dual geared and joystick operation, steel chassy with rechargeable wheelchair motor . Hybrid.
Lined with fake fur and upholstered in lush crushed velvet, sequined and glittered heel. Built by the fabulous Pat and Laura at Mantaray.
