Amazing Maurice - Finished!

So here's a little edit of most of the backgrounds, recorded at the rehearsals. Technical hitches aside, I think the project turned out pretty well. Director David seemed happy anyway...

Amazing Maurice

Technical problems ahoy! The clouds have been bloody annoying - VJ software apparently wasn't built to deal with 10 minutes of them, so we came up with the solution to just scroll a very long still image of clouds in the VJ software, at the expense of some lovely parallax. The slight problem with that though is that they randomly decide to disappear at seemingly completely unpredictable intervals, leaving a black sky in the background. And the slightly bigger problem is that this actually did happen on the opening night of the play! I was sure I'd sorted it out in rehearsals but I think it's just a software bug, so we're keeping them still for the rest of the run... turns out people thought it was intentional anyway!

More exciting news later.
