Job: PhD scholarship at the University of Sheffield

A PhD scholarship is available at the University of Sheffield, under the supervision of Dr Steve Maddock:

RECITE PhD 3: Documenting character performance for pre- and post-production theatre activities

Supervisors: Dr Steve Maddock, Computer Science (; Dr Frances Babbage, School of English.

To investigate how the movements of actors could be mapped, reconstructed and overlaid on virtual theatres as 3D virtual plays and what digital records would best support both pre- and post-production theatre activities and how such a digital record may change the role of the director of the play. Some practical experience in three-dimensional computer graphics, particularly character modelling and animation, and an interest in understanding stage performance would be useful for this project.
