We can do everything – go virtually anywhere.
The question is : where?
As a spectator, I usually put myself in front of the stage or the screen.
If VR will allow me to be a ghost, I can go anywhere.
Once or twice, I will surely see a room by the lodges
Or under the stage
Three or four times, I will go on the stage.
There have been trials. Hamlet in New York for example:
And after that ?
I’ll tell myself that I missed the show
And I will not do it again.
Especially if Altair does what he has announced: a virtual show as ephemeral as the real given on stage.
So, to let the viewer choose his placement is to let him stand as usual: in front.
We have to find a way for VR to be interesting in this case.
This solution is not too complicated, from the moment we guide the viewer – and where it is placed in different places.
It is from these locations chosen in advance that the viewer will have freedom of looks and movements (except when I want it to stay where I placed it … it will be rare)
But it combines live VR and editing plans
It will be a question of being in different points of view, not in 2D but in 3D – so you will become, and without anybody asking you nothing: the cameraman 2, the perch 4, the artist 7 etc
And suddenly, you will be in another way, in the show.
And when you want to see a classic show, from the front – either you will watch Netflix, or you will come to the theatre.
Altair Twin will be a different twin.
There is no question of taking a 3D show that you will look in 2 ….
If you have suggestions
this is the moment, we are currently designing the prototypes 🙂
