In 2003 Derek Richards provided set and projection design for a National Theatre /Art of Regeneration production of Shakespeare’s Macbeth. The set consisted of a single flat surface with a central opening panel augmented by black transparent scrim to provide surfaces for conceal and reveal projection. All of the environments were created by projection of still and moving images onto the panel and scrims from a single physical projector. Effects such as fire from lanterns and fireplaces, animated characters (e.g. snakes) projection-mapped onto moving cast members and the appearance of Banquo’s ghost in the middle of the stage were created.
