The Capturing project has looked into the possibilities of live image capturing and tracking within a musical context. Doing so, a method was developed to teach actors to deal with this technology in a natural way within the context of a performance.
The use of capturing within the context of a performance is rather limited at this time. We can sum up several reasons for this. For one, latency remains a problem, but also very few professionals are acquainted with the technology and actors/singers continue to struggle with the use.
The question came from the field, especially from scenographers and musical makers, to further explore these techniques so they could be employed in a production context. To ensure they can be used to their full potential, (future) actors need to be trained in the use of this technology. An adapted method is necessary for this.
As a final piece of the research, the project organized a workshop for youngsters 16 and older from Brussels and called it transmedia summerschool.
“Space, 2058. 100 years after the futuristic Expo ’58 with Sputnik and the Atomium, Brussels has to migrate to an asteroid flashing by with everything it holds dear. It is up to you to be part of the team that will develop a live prototype this summer to make this possible.
Professionals and international artists, philosophers and scientists will guide you in this 10 day quest of working with the newest technologies: video-mapping, 3D-modeling, 3D-painting, VJ-ing, media footage, coding, motion capturing, Virtual Reality,… Together we will create a spaceship-planetoid and present our imagination to the public.”
