Submarine Time Machine

A sight specific performance that took place along the Forth and Clyde Canal in Glasgow, Submarine Time Machine was a celebration of the history and culture of the canal and its people and was created by National Theatre of Scotland.
The story is told through a dozen or so site-specific episodes of story and song, one of which was a magical submarine floating on the canal. I created the video to transform the windows of the submarine to allow the audience to travel through time!
It was a real challenge to coordinate 6 different window views in 3 dimensions for a continuous 10 minute experience that traveled to a dozen locations in the canal’s past, present and future. 

The experience was captured in 360º by the excellent Seth Hardwick.
