Looking at the brief

I don’t understand some words. 😀

Dioramas – a partially three-dimensional, full-size replica or scale model of a landscape typically showing historical events, nature scenes or cityscapes, for purposes of education or entertainment.

I don’t really get that. How does that help with the project? It’s been used in schools and museums but I don’t get how that works with future cinema.


Used in schools

Pleoramas – moving panorama entertainment where the viewers sat in a rocking boat while panoramic views on painted canvas rolled past. The word has sometimes been used for other entertainments or innovations.

Pepper’s Ghost – is an illusion technique used in theatre, haunted houses, dark rides and in some magic tricks. Using plate glass, Plexiglas or plastic film and special lighting techniques, it can make objects seem to appear or disappear, to become transparent, or to make one object morph into another.

That would be really cool for some horror.

Used in television –

Teleprompters are a modern implementation of Pepper’s ghost used by the television industry. They reflect a speech or script and are commonly used for live broadcasts such as news programmes.

The South African Jewish Museum in Cape Town uses elaborate Pepper’s ghost video technology in their permanent exhibit. The Artist Group PXNG.LI is showing evolutionary processes in a Pepper’s ghost box at the Natural Science Museum in Karlsruhe, Germany.

In the episode of The Magic School Bus that deals with light, Gets a Bright Idea, Arnold’s mischievous cousin Janet uses a Pepper’s ghost illusion to convince the class a theater is haunted. It ends up helping the class learn more about how light and reflections behave.
