We are delighted to say that we have been commissioned by the Cork County Arts office & the Arts Council of Ireland to create a digital production for Culture Night on 18th Sept. 2020.
The production, called The Presence, aims to take a fantastical look at the life of an eccentric busker. It will be presented online in the style of a graphic novel, and allow the viewer to choose where the character goes by selecting from a series of linking videos, each tracing a different narrative thread.
Filming has already begun in & around Clonakilty and the West Cork countryside.
The story will integrate elements of circus skills, theatrical design and comic characterisation. It aims to capture the feel of a live street show and provide the audience with the opportunity to interact with the character in a digital format.
