Prototype of the benshi video player

2011
Digitized a rare audio recording of Tokugawa Musei’s benshi performance in Japanese for The Cabinet of Dr. Caligari (Das Cabinet des Dr. Caligari: German, 1920). He then synchronized the audio file with the film. Omori transcribed Musei’s benshi narration and translated it into English. Greg Lord designed a prototype of the video player, which plays the combination of video + audio + Japanese transcription +  English translation of the script.
