The advances of modern technology

Julie and I went to see The Wall in London. And one of the more impressive things they did as part of the stage show (other than crashing a plane into the stage at the start) was use the wall as a massive projection backdrop.

During the first half of the show they build the wall up, culminating with the musicians being bricked in behind it at the end of part one. During part two they project images onto it - starting off with images that mesh perfectly onto what's actually there, and then shifting perspective, or moving individual bricks, or just projecting massive bits of video onto it.

The two most effective bits were Run Like Hell:

and Vera/Bring The Boys Back Home:

which managed to make me cry. Bastards.
