The 5th novel of 2nd day of Decameron by Giovanni Boccaccio is developed as a: real time 3D animation, immersive, multicast, for tablets.We expand the novel of Boccaccio in four short stories that tell parallel actions of the four main characters, the four narrative nodes flow aligned and synchronized, and the viewer can at all times: following the story of each character, jumping from one node to another synchronized in time, live the author's point of view and adopt their own point of view on the stage, eventually changing also the focus from the main story to the side stories that take place around, follow the author's director cut that collects some moments of the four paths into a single classic film.
Decameroscopio brings a multidirectional renewal of traditional movie language, it offers to the viewer the chance to immerse themselves in time and space of the story, multiplying fascinations through a narrative kaleidoscope
In the last twenty years the perception of a movie has undergone a radical transformation, a movie today is seen on personal and portable devices, changing the celebrative and collective way of the last century cinema, tablets and smartphones allow fragmentation and repetition of perception and especially “manipulation”.
A modern tablet has increased over time, thanks to gaming market, a huge graphics performance capabilities,and now you can imagine to develop a digital animation for tablet with real-time and explorability features. A freedom of perception which until now has been constitutive of “gaming culture” but that can be declined in narrative form.
the content is a worldwide italian classic masterpiece, revisited so many times for his brilliant, nice, grotesque and deep feature. We work with real actors of “commedia dell’arte” and motion capture technology, the artistic approach is basicly “theatrical” and theatrical will be the performance dynamics, but Motion Capture technology brings this performance in an absolute formal freedom area, a kind of art as old as “commedia dell’arte” converges in a modern instrument of renewal.
our friend Giovanni Boccaccio is the focus of our work, without his beautiful art we could not grow its characters and ours, who accompanied them. Andreuccio da Perugia, Fiordaliso, Buttafuoco, Guccio Porco, Scannadio, Tancredi, Rinuccio e il prete Giovanni are its creatures and to someone of them we have given a name and a story. Together with them we worked on directing, writing the screenplay, on the design of their appearance and their world, on acting with actors and with engineers who have made possible the creation of their digital universe in which they live their lives and " incidentally "act our story.
