A note from the Special Effects Artist
25 October 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

The computer is stolen from the office and used as a real-time image processor for a live dance performance on stage. The Fame dancers' movements are captured by a video camera, processed, and projected onto a screen on stage. Of course the computer stays with the dance department as it is clearly an art tool.

The script was based on my own live performance work, and I created the live effects on set using my own, home made processing equipment. The tape I made was converted to film and inserted into the re-staged dance. I hope that this episode makes it to DVD some day.
