Martin Eddy, Nick Hart, Dave Hotchkiss and Miles Sloman are creating a heritage film for projection in the Immersive Film Dome at Real Ideas Organisation’s Market Hall, Devonport, in the first instance.
They will be animating 20 letters written home in the 1860s by a Cornish family migrating to Australia, using professional Cornish actors and musicians, sound and film specialists. The script and original songs are derived entirely from the letters (which have emerged from a private collection). It is anticipated that the project will be presented in a number of formats, including radio play (or blog), immersive film and VR headset, as well as conventional film.
