Visual merchandise consultant David Anthony talks with South London Voices host Yang-May Ooi about the theatre of restaurants and retail spaces – and being a scenic artis on the sets of The Crown and Bohemian Rhapsody.
If you’ve walked into a restaurant or shop just because you feel drawn to the feeling of the space or mood or a certain je ne sais quoi that you somehow find appealing… well, it’s not by accident. Creative visionaries like David Anthony work hard behind the scenes to create that attraction in retail and other spaces.
He shares his trade secrets with me on this episode of South London Voices – and it is utterly fascinating!
David is also involved in film and TV as a scenic artist (or extra) and he gives us a glimpse into what it’s like to be part of a high profile TV drama like The Crown and a big movie like Bohemian Rhapsody.
