Revelry 2021: On the Edge of Technology and Live Theatre: A Presentation on Virtual Theatre at USM
Combining pods and the virtual backgrounds, the USM Theatre Program is able to accomplish more than the typical Zoom production.
Direct from Jay Morris, the Technical Director: “We were able to use various camera angles and integrate movement and composite the actors so that it appeared they were in the same space. By creating this 3D environment, we were able to create a dynamic visual for the audience while preserving live theatre.
As a group of professors and grad students, we believe that we are encouraged to experiment with theatre. We are allowed to take risks while in school that other theatres may not be able to take. We began this year with nothing but very simple knowledge of 3D programs. By experimenting with various programs, technology, and equipment we are capable of putting out live theatre again.”
