Dogfight is a memory play about a guy meeting a girl in a unconventional way just before shipping out to Vietnam. There are a lot of locations in and around San Francisco, and a significant variety of specific locations and ethereal memory things that we needed to make up a vocabulary to identify things as specifically as possible. The set is an organic deconstruction of the Golden Gate Bridge with a massive rear-projection screen as a back wall.
Media was served from a MacBook Pro via Qlab to two projectors. An Ultra-Short Throw projector that needed to be extremely close to the set due to space restrictions and a Short Throw projector that was mounted sideways because the projection surface is very vertical. These are two pretty unique setups, but achieve an effective look throughout the play.
