"I have a theory that Titanic is actually a science fiction film... The character played by Leonardo DiCaprio is a time traveller from 1998; while all of the other actors are very stiff and Edwardian, he just plays himself, a contemporary Californian. The ship is like the industrial age sailing through history. It’s a film made almost entirely with digital technology and I think technology is one of the big ideas in the film – how the real can now be manipulated and moulded into whatever we desire."

The plan was to play a film through a fibre optic lamp. Didn't work due to a combination of the projector not being strong enough and not enough fibres. Instead of going from sepia to colour when Dorothy entered Oz, it just went from slightly orange to slightly blue.
Will continue to develop at a later date.
