Nutcracker: The Movie – Coming Summer 2021
Filmed in November and December 2020, the Lasley Centre’s Nutcracker Movie is well under way in the editing room. Footage for the film was shot at a number of locations in and near Fauquier County, and a large number of dances were filmed on green screen. Our video producer is using CGI technology to transport our dancers to a magical world, far beyond the stage upon which we traditionally see the Nutcracker. Needless to say, this is a time-consuming process. You hear about Hollywood having multi-million dollar budgets for effects, and it still takes entire teams months to complete the special effects for those films. We are doing the best we can to deliver the movie at high quality and in a reasonable amount of time. Expect a summer 2021 release of Nutcracker: The Movie!
