The Loneliness of the Long Distance Artistic Director’s workspace…

vinyl playing on Steepletone deck / iphone updating / moleskine and fountain pen / logitech keyboard for ipad / sun streaming in through the window / hot coffee / I like my workspace. I am back at my desk now – we have come out of a very busy making period.

We ran the Space project on August 11th and that went live with 6 cam livestream – the ‘as live’ archive went live on the in the first week of September.

During this time I directed The Loneliness of The Long Distance Runner starting on August 20th – we opened on September 19th last week. We have had the press in and we are about to go on tour starting in Birmingaham at the Rep next week.

I can now breathe…

Today I have music playing and am playing catch up with work emails and stuff – so in early – and I have brought some classic vinyl in from home…

Watching the Mystery Plays remix on the iPad – on allows you to go full screen

Just touch the screen and widen the player.

Here at Pilot Theatre we launched this on Thursday – 6 camera feeds – 3 audio feeds and full text transcript.

A chance to remix the livestream from August 11th

This is essentially 6 iPlayers all running in sync – each with 4 hours of HD video – so 24 hours of HD streaming to your phone / iPad / tablet / computer

It is a first iteration and part of the R and D we have been developing with Kinura since our first livestream four years ago.

This has evolved into our PilotLive project and this 6 camera idea is the first step in evolving how we can move forward with our new ideas and innovation about audience engagement with the arts.

The Space has allowed us to take these steps and we will be continuing with our thinking.

Please do feed back any thoughts or comments.

It is how we will all learn to make this work better
