ZLIN FILM FESTIVAL


Company: Robe Location: Zlin, Czech Republic


Robe lighting supported the 51st International Film Festival for Children and Youth in Zlín - Czech Republic - by supplying lighting and digital projection equipment to several installations and event spaces. Zlin Film Festival is the oldest - and among the largest - film festivals of its kind worldwide. It attracts over 100,000 visitors to see nearly 600 films from more than 50 countries, screened over eight days. One of the events in which Robe’s Digital- Spot 7000 DTs showed their power and flexibility was a party for SYNOT TIP, the main general sponsor of the 2011 Film Festival. Their lively and up beat party was held in the atrium of the Zlin University library building designed by famous Czech architect, Eva Jiricna. The visual design for the event was created by HUCOT - a collective of independ- ent young artists focused on visual works - and the theme for the evening was historical Roma, Italy. HUCOT created special content for projections from five Robe DigitalSpot 7000 DTs - with a plethora of classical architecture, features, sculptures, ambiences and other Romanesque styed image-based digital scenery. This was stored in the heads of each of the DigitalSpots. Each projector was mapped onto the glass brick wall in the atrium, covering an area of 30 by 7.5 metres with large high-impact images. The back of the wall was covered with a special paper surface to make it opaque for the event and enhance the projections. This was a success and the HUCOT creative team love working with the DigitalS- pot 7000. A spokeperson commented: “These are the only projectors of their kind on the market offering such a wide variety of possibilities and features, all of which

are usable, practical and work well. The mapping is so easy, and you can very precisely recreate large images” Additionally, six Robe ColorSpot 1200E AT moving heads were positioned on the first floor balcony on flightcases and used to light the space, adding extra ambi- ence and atmosphere. All lighting fixtures and the DigitalSpots were controlled via an Avolites Pearl console, operated by Václav Ondrousek. The prestigious Skoda VIP Party was held in the atrium of the newly opened Baltaci Hotel, and this also required some special visual enhancements to make it a magical evening for all attending. The lighting and visual design was again by HUCOT, who started with a model of the new Skoda Fabia RS, simply and effectively lit with four Anolis ArcPad 96s in white. Powerful, bright and capable of producing a rich and a proper white, these were exactly right for the job. Inside the atrium itself were five Robe DigitalSpot 7000 DTs, which were loaded with special content containing the new Skoda logo and a short historical movie from the Czech Republic’s leading car manufacturer. They were projecting on to two large screens, 10 metres wide by four metres deep. Four of the projectors were overlaid in two pairs and the images merged to feed the screens with an optimum brightness image. The fifth beamed the logo prominently around the auditorium. The projection content was also produced by HUCOT.
