Events don’t always have to be big, and getting hold of the latest high-tech wizardry doesn’t always mean breaking the bank either – as demonstrated by the gadget of the week, Luckies of London’s Smartphone Projector. A glass lens, ingenious cardboard case, and a smartphone – that’s all you need for a fantastic film evening with your friends.
SHOWTECH goes Prolight: Aaand Action!
SHOWTECH is going to be represented for the first time at next year’s Prolight + Sound 2015. The PLS team has asked Regine Hergersberg, managing director of Germany’s ‘The Filmmakers’ Federal Society of Film Industry Associations (Die Filmschaffenden – Bundesvereinigung der Filmschaffenden-Verbände e.V.) what we can expect at Messe Frankfurt between April 15th and 18th 2015.
Why should the film industry be represented at the Frankfurt Trade Fair?
Regine Hergersberg: Film is a multidisciplinary affair, one not quite like any other form of creative expression. All the areas of expertise that are combined in the production of a film are intertwined and dependent on each other. This is what ‘The Filmmakers’, as the umbrella organisation for the film and TV industry, is presenting at PLS, this connection between technology, creativity, and organisation.

Projection Foils from Gerriets
Since cloud covered mountains, iced landscapes or overgrown sheer rock walls, needed for film, TV and stage productions, are not always readily available outside your front door, nor do they grow on stage, you need alternatives. Professionals can create deceivingly real scenery- detailed all the way to the tip of the conifer. Therefore, the company Gerriets chose to specialize in the production of foils, textiles and scenery for theatre, film, TV, exhibition stands and open air venues.
