Donate $3 via PayPal, and the theatre is yours as a thank you!
Delivered via download link to an 18Mb .zip file.
One carefully constructed and textured iClone 4.0 project file. Containing an authentic Victorian-era paper theatre. Working “character on glass” slides on wooden sliders, plus backdrop cards and four lighting presets. Authentic style, carefully modelled from original reference materials. Just load it with iClone.
High-quality textures (scanned from original old books) mean it looks good in close-up. Ready to film!
Set up with three backdrops, for a three-act mini-play.
Selected characters and sliders as ready-positioned iProps. Plus one empty wooden slider.
My original character cut-outs and alpha channels, from Tenniel’s famous Alice illustrations.
All textures including the character cut-outs, for alteration by you in Photoshop if needed. I have included a blank stage backdrop.
Just 24,000 faces. No need to worry about adding more elements to the scene.
Four lighting presets. Five camera positions.
Royalty-free for use in video or games.
Extra bonus prop — the mysterious “ancient play-book”.
A simple storytelling animation could be made with very young children. No complex animations to worry about, just record audio and then slide the sliders so your film fits the dialogue. Make a magical video DVD present for grandparents!
You might want to replace the Alice characters with other Victorian-era die-cut characters, to play out other stories such as fairy stories or animal stories.
Convert the theatre into your own customised “gothic horror” or “steampunk surrealism” video artwork!
Use as an introduction to a story, in which the paper theatre characters magically “come alive” in 3D!
Use to grab the interest of school children, prior to teaching about the history of children’s theatre and puppetry.
Use popVideo Converter 2 and a green-screen to put your children on the stage. Put on a magical miniature Christmas pantomime!
Use as one element of a historical costume drama or ghost story. Use Clone Bone to make old-fashioned puppet characters for iClone?
As an opening titles / credits sequence / intro voice-over sequence for your video.
A visual accompaniment to children’s poetry.
Use as part of a point-and-click videogame. Through the use of clickable hotspots it could be made into a puzzle?
Make an entertaining foyer video for a Victorian-era heritage center, gallery or museum. Perhaps showing your museum’s old children’s characters (dolls, die-cuts, puppets, children in paintings etc) as animated cut-outs?
