Urbanscreen projection is an artistic approach to the main motto of the 50th film festival of Thessaloniki, “Why cinema now?”. Through their eyes cinema is de constructing on the façade of “Olympion” and reconstructing in a way that any viewer could give his own answer to the question.
Urbanscreen conceive and produce custom-made media installations using high artistic standards, an architectural approach and a consistently professional completion; in doing so, creating uniquely outstanding impressions. In order to achieve it in Thessaloniki they teamed up with Alphavision, by using their equipment and technical skills. Alphavision’s experienced audiovisual department worked with Urbanscreen, providing the necessary equipments, two Cristie LX-1500 projectors with 15000 ANSI lumens, high performance special lenses and skilled technicians for a 10 days support. The result you can see it in the video above or below.
