Ravi Deepres will be in conversation discussing his new film 'The Gain Line', and the Technology which influences modern Rugby

About

‘The Gain Line’, a new film by award–winning artist Ravi Deepres, promises to take audiences on a unique journey to the heart of the game of rugby. Using innovative new technologies such as micro-cams, drones mapping player movement and groundbreaking 3D laser scanning, the film places the viewer into the mindset of the player. Although rugby is a visceral, physical sport it is also one that increasingly monitors a range of sophisticated technological data (including GPS, heart rate and other readings). Combining insights gained from this new digital field, while transporting us back to the historical origins of the game, Deepres’ work captures the intensity and dynamics of rugby while also evoking some of the physical and psychological forces it sets in motion.

Commissioned by Film and Video Umbrella and Rugby Art Gallery and Museum in partnership with Phoenix, Leicester and ICIA, University of Bath and supported by Arts Council England.

The filming of specific sequences with made possible by working directly with Rugby School; Rugby Lions; Bath Rugby; World Rugby Museum and Rugby Football Union; Twickenham Stadium.
