Digital sets are ones in which the design of the space is meant to support additional digital effects including (but not limited to):
Digital sets can take us to new fields of view, depths and perspectives that other design styles cannot. Often digital effects are used to give the feeling of a “live” environment, give the actor a stronger sense of control of their space or can even be used to create digital actors entirely. Both The Ring Cycle used and The Magic Flute utilized digital actors voiced or sung just offstage, while a computer interpreted and mimicked their actions onstage thru projections. Digital sets can then combined with box, unit, atmospheric (projection on fog is amazing), installation, site-specifc and collaged sets.

Vimeo Staff Pick: A film by Ben Ridgway Cosmic Flower Unfolding is a constant flow of emerging and dissolving oceanic, futuristic, and mandala forms. It is a tribute to abstraction, it’s connection to the inner space we inhabit and how it can be externalized.
