We are going to be using multimedia design in the showcase. Peter Dunphy, a film designer who worked on Pan's Labyrinth and Karl Roberts from JABOD, have agreed to be our Multimedia Design Team. Last night Helen Eastman, our director called a meeting with Steve and I and the Multimedia design team. This was to establish why we were going to be using projection and animation, how we wanted it used and to discover what ideas the team had. It was also an introduction to the process of making theatre for the film designers.
We are also going to be employing a lighting designer to create the atmospheric lighting on stage and liase with the film design team and the theatre.
Peter came up with some very exciting ideas, although we will be limited by time and money to do as much as we would like. However, we all want to use the showcase to give a sample of what could be done in performance.
It was decided that Peter and Helen would liase over which areas of the musical the projections would appear and Peter and karl will then create some samples for us all to look at by 20th March.
This was a very exciting meeting, a combination of two worlds so different, that even the language had to be translated! We are very lucky to have such an amazing multimedia team on board.
