Major: Update 22/04-27/04

Doing theatre/concert design
Taking forward my most successful past ideas - The third projection mapping test and the Pandora's Box.

More specifically, I'm doing a theatre demonstration sequence adapted from Shakespeare's Henry V

There's restrictions with unity in terms of how I can vary the visuals and the direction I'm hitting at this point.  So I'm cutting that out of the pipeline.

I'm pulling pre-rendered clips and attaching them to user interaction. It'll take away the problem of latency and will make things less complicated then it needs to be.

Fundamentals are

Dialogue Spoken by Chorus, Henry V, Prologue:

[Enter Chorus]
  • Chorus. O for a Muse of fire, that would ascend
    The brightest heaven of invention,
    A kingdom for a stage, princes to act
    And monarchs to behold the swelling scene! 5
    Then should the warlike Harry, like himself,
    Assume the port of Mars; and at his heels,
    Leash'd in like hounds, should famine, sword and fire
    Crouch for employment. But pardon, and gentles all,
    The flat unraised spirits that have dared 10
    On this unworthy scaffold to bring forth
    So great an object: can this cockpit hold
    The vasty fields of France? or may we cram
    Within this wooden O the very casques
    That did affright the air at Agincourt? 15
    O, pardon! since a crooked figure may
    Attest in little place a million;
    And let us, ciphers to this great accompt,
    On your imaginary forces work.
    Suppose within the girdle of these walls 20
    Are now confined two mighty monarchies,
    Whose high upreared and abutting fronts
    The perilous narrow ocean parts asunder:
    Piece out our imperfections with your thoughts;
    Into a thousand parts divide on man, 25
    And make imaginary puissance;
    Think when we talk of horses, that you see them
    Printing their proud hoofs i' the receiving earth;
    For 'tis your thoughts that now must deck our kings,
    Carry them here and there; jumping o'er times, 30
    Turning the accomplishment of many years
    Into an hour-glass: for the which supply,
    Admit me Chorus to this history;
    Who prologue-like your humble patience pray,
    Gently to hear, kindly to judge, our play.35

Seven bundles of dialogue, Seven pre-rendered sequences, Seven areas to mark.
