TalkCast 461 – Welcome to Lockdown Theatre

Welcome to Tough Trip Through Hell. Every so often we at Sci Fi Saturday Night find something so very different and wonderfully interesting that even if it doesn’t fit into our usual fair we want others to learn about.  This show is one of those.   During this pandemic, when any entertainment is limited, it is fascinating when we get to see something new streamed into our eye and ear holes in an innovative and creative way.  On this show we talk to return guest Bruce Olav Solheim along with the cast and crew of a fascinating offering.  First off it is a western set post Civil War.  Not our usual fare, but then you look at how they did it.  Live streamed theater where the actors are currently “locked down” in their separate homes with green screen backdrops created using the Unreal Engine,  the same engine that powers video games.  That is what Lockdown Theatre brings us.  Theatre meets film meets video games. Welcome to the pandemic.

As we all hope to get back to “normalcy” some day, what the team at Lockdown Theatre has done gives us some interesting frontiers for future entertainment with possibilities of actors and creators around the world being able to work on and act in projects without having to be co-located.  An interesting prospect to say the least.
