Unique camera gets all the angles on dance

Kemp's Men of Norwich have been captured in performance by a unique camera that can film from five different angles simultaneously.

The shots of the team dancing outside the Wig and Pen pub will feature in a 180-degree wraparound video film, as part of the Norwich Millennium Project.

They'll be juxtaposed with images of famous city landmarks and sound from the past, according to a report in the Eastern Daily Press.

The film will be shown at the Millennium Library, which opens next year, in a special mini-theatre.

The Norwegian-made camera was mounted on a truck outside the Wig and Pen to record Kemp's Men. The finished film will also feature reed-cutters in the Broads, and wherries at Yarmouth.

Robin Hall, chief executive of the Norfolk and Norwich Millennium Company, says the video theatre will provide "a spectacular and breathtaking journey through time and space, telling the story of Norwich and Norfolk through the ages in an exciting and involving way".
