Platonov, or the Disinherited
adapted and directed by Jay Scheib after the play by Chekhov

October 3, 2013 La Jolla Playhouse

Platonov, or The Disinherited builds upon stagecast initiatives such as National Theatre Live and the Metropolitan Opera’s Live in HD. Rather than shooting from the back of the theater at The Kitchen, Scheib—as he has done in past productions such as World of Wires at The Kitchen operates the cameras himself on stage, visible to the audience. The footage is projected onto screens integrated into the set, and, in the case of Platonov, or The Disinherited, is also live-edited and broadcast to cinemas as a stand-alone feature film generated in real time. This worksample represents only what is filmed by Scheib's camera.
