You by no means know the place you’ll discover some Shakespeare. I noticed the trailer for the brand new Air film about Nike, which prominently options individuals speaking *about* Michael Jordan however no precise Michael Jordan. So off I went to IMDB, curious to see who could be enjoying him. I discovered it fascinating that the actor in that function is listed seventh, behind the actor enjoying his father, Julius Tennon, who doesn’t actually have a headshot. So I clicked to study extra about Julius Tennon and located …
Operation Othello is “a futuristic adaptation of Shakespeare’s Othello set in the world of an elite naval special forces unit.”
Oh? Tell me extra!
Tennon has a number of performing credit relationship again to the Eighties, undecided why he doesn’t have a headshot on file (there are many photographs). In reality, he’s bought a manufacturing coming with Viola Davis, JuVee Productions, and that is their mission. Debuting at Cannes in 2019 as a “VR series,” and I’m much more curious now about what which means:
“We believe Immersive Media is an integral part of the future of storytelling and presents a unique opportunity to bring a voice to the voiceless. As an ‘empathy machine,’ we’re excited to see how VR can allow viewers to be intimately present with powerful characters across the broad spectrum of humanity.”
“As an avid Shakespeare lover who has been lucky enough to witness and perform his profound words on stage,” Chieffo says, “I was inspired to present the original text in a way that is accessible and exhilarating to a modern audience.”
IMDB calls it a TV Movie. I’m questioning in the event that they tailored it into one thing extra conventional for wider launch as a result of the press launch appears to indicate it’s one thing extra like a recreation. I don’t suppose we now have an excellent title but for immersive motion pictures the place you placed on the headset and “experience” the story, however actually the story continues to be the identical it doesn’t matter what you do.
