Simon McBurney: Complicite’s The Encounter

"Simon McBurney transports us into the humid depths of the Amazon, his storytelling served by the enveloping presence of binaural technology.

After premiering at Edinburgh International Festival this August, Complicite's The Encounter is currently play a sold-out run on our stage. We're delighted to support Complicite in their first live-stream as they broadcast The Encounter live online from our theatre to your home by watching through our website on Tuesday 1 March, 7.30pm GMT.

Audiences must wear headphones to watch the live stream, or the effect of the binaural recording will be lost. Any headphones will work, but playing the film out of speakers will not give the same effect. The live stream is free to watch, and will also be available to watch on demand for a week after the live broadcast, until Tuesday 8 March."

Streamed live on 1 Mar 2016

Watch The Encounter (sold out) live from the Barbican, London until 8 March. Headphones MUST be worn to experience the show's binaural sound design (3D audio). Directed and performed by Simon McBurney.

Digital Bolex: 16mm Filmmaking Goes Digital

"Most film students now use DSLRs. But for those who want a digital tool to produce more film–like images, Bolex – one of the classic 16mm camera makers – recently started shipping a digital 16mm–equivalent video camera that's fully compatible with the most desirable vintage C–mount lenses.

The new Bolex camera, dubbed the D16, doesn't just sport a retro look. Its Kodak–produced CCD sensor is very close to Super 16–sized, which is uncommon in modern cameras. Even better, that sensor shoots in RAW at 32 frames per second at a resolution of 2048x1152 pixels. Every uncompressed frame should be sharp, as opposed to the compressed footage even full–frame DSLRs produce. Plus, the Super 16–sized sensor means that the D16 can use C–mount lenses without any crop factor.

The camera is being produced under the name 'Digital Bolex,' but it's actually a joint venture between the original manufacturer, Bolex International, S.A., and Cinemeridian, Inc, a young company of digital wizards that was formed to bring this idea to fruition."
