The Brighton Digital Festival opens in September and comprises over 100 amazing events. One event worth a look is The Paper Cinema’s Odyssey which is at The Old Market (TOM) in Hove on
19th to the 21st September 2013. The Brighton Digital Festival website describes it as:
“A silent film of Homer’s epic created before your eyes with exceptional live music. A Paper Cinema and Battersea Arts Centre co-production.
Adventure and encounter; a silent film of Homer’s epic created before your eyes with exceptional live music.
Raging storms and supernatural forces prevail over one man’s almighty quest to get home. Immerse yourself in a journey through the high seas, soak up the adventure and encounter danger and exhilaration.
Homer’s cornerstone of literature is vividly told with beautiful illustration and masterful puppetry. Cinematic projection and cunning tricks transform a suitcase full of cut-out paper puppets into an array of living characters and striking landscapes. A silent film is created before your eyes, set to a captivating live score from exceptional musicians.”
