Staff and students working in Studio A, WMU’s digital media studio, are working hard to create imagery for the upcoming production of The Rocky Horror Show. The show, which is being produced collaboratively by the Department of Theatre and Miller Auditorium, will employ five projection screens and six digital projectors to greatly enhance the production.

Using professional 3D modeling, animation and video tools, the Studio A staff, led by information technology's Kevin Abbott, Project Lead for 3D and Interactive Media, are creating a variety of scenes, including the singing lips, church, rain-swept roadway, and of course, Dr. Frank-N-Furter’s castle. All of the content will be played back through the use of the Unity game engine, allowing the projections to coordinate perfectly with the live action.
