In The Flesh
Roger Waters ‘In The Flesh’ tour kicked off in 1999 using large format PIGI scroller projection operated by our good friend Andy Joyes. It creates a great image, derived from a 160mm slide film, however it’s fairly inflexible in terms of changes.
In 2000 we performed a shoot out between the PIGI projectors and a pair of the latest available Barco projectors doubled up. The brightness was comparable, but the flexibility offered by content played back from video persuaded Creative Director Jonathan Park, to opt for a video based solution.
We specified and designed the video playback and projection system and then worked with Roger and Jonathan to migrate the original slide artwork into the software package; Adobe After Effects and then animate and combine the original footage with additional video clips to upgrade the show.
