Like the cinema, but with a twist! As part of our continuing research, you are now invited to watch Waiting for Godot recorded especially for on-screen viewing at venues on 20th 21st & 23rd November. Our technology partners Golant Media Ventures are working with the venues: Driftwood Spars, St Agnes, Exeter University, Maker Junction, Barbican Theatre Plymouth to pilot their new digital distribution platform Cinegi ahead of a full launch in early 2014. Cinegi is the new secure, fully digital, film distribution and entertainment service for public venues and other commercial and not-for-profit organisations. Cinegi gives anyone, anywhere the opportunity to organise legal public screenings in high definition. It’s a one-stop shop for film - all by a simple download! Next weeks Waiting for Godot screenings will be shown by the power of Cinegi!
So if you’ve missed seeing the show OR saw it and fancy experiencing it again in a different way - come along!
There is no charge: you are simply asked to EXPERIENCE the production & give FEEDBACK after the show.
‘Digital Miracle’ is a research and development project funded by the Digital R&D Fund for the Arts, England run by Nesta, Arts Council England and Arts and Humanities Research Council, and produced in partnership with Golant Media Ventures, Falmouth University and Dogbite Film.
Miracle kick started its season of digital experiments by plunging straight into the deep end with the streaming of ‘Waiting for Godot’ live from The Performance Centre, Penryn to audiences at Barbican Theatre Plymouth & Driftwood Spars Pub, St Agnes.
It was a night of fabulous performances and shared -experiences, which at times found us ‘waiting’ for the live stream as well as Godot, due to a few technical problems! So it is onwards and upwards on our digital journey! We’ll keep you posted on the next step.
Miracle kick starts a Season of Digital Experiments with its first live streaming event - using its acclaimed production of 'Waiting for Godot' - on September 12th 7:30pm.
So, if you haven’t seen the show yet, OR saw it and fancy experiencing it in a different way – here’s your chance!
There is no charge: you are simply asked to EXPERIENCE the production & give FEEDBACK before and after the show.
