Here’s a concept film from the Black Tonic CATH project I’ve been working on with Katie and John. It’s got a working title of Agent in a Box, and was filmed by Chris Keenan.
The film brings together everything we’ve worked on so far on this project. We’ve also been able to test the first few minutes of the experience – Katie took the early work to a Pilot Sites event in May.
We’re now exploring what might happen next.
You can see the early stages of the project when we started thinking about digital adventures in theatre from autumn last year.
In the past couple of sessions for our CATH project, we’ve refined ideas further, talked lots and sketched and drawn. We’ve now come up with a core idea we’re working on for the remainder of the time on the project.
Here’s what I’m working on at the moment.
Last Tuesday I ran sessions at TeenTech in Bristol on designing an app. The sessions were run for 300 12- and-13-year-olds (and their teachers), with Justyn Spooner from Bright Yak. TeenTech helps young teenagers see the career possibilities in science, technology, engineering, maths – and the arts.
Last month, I spent a day at Birmingham University’s newly opened Prototyping Hall to begin a new piece of work exploring digital experiences in theatre.
