My response to the YourFry digital storytelling challenge takes the form of a Galanty show nodding back to the day when everything was 2D. A Galanty is 'a pantomime shadow play, especially one in miniature using figures cut from paper.'
With my performance animation software, the ShadowEngine, the Shadow puppet is given a digital make-over using a games engine and touch surfaces (iPads) as puppet and cinematic controllers. Multiple performers or interested audience members take control of the digital puppet show using touch surfaces like iPhones or iPads and rehearse or casually respond to the story-making and improvised flow.
The Fry Chronicles, shaped by Mr Fry's polymathic presence, with a fusion of vaudeville, musical theatre, debauchery, indulgence, geekery and the celebration of old and new media chime with my inner media archaeologist and 'The Fry Chronicles' exemplifies the material for which the ShadowEngine was created.
Note: there is dual spelling of 'galanty' or 'gallanty'
