Maestra gets the Cannes Buzz

Event technical production specialist Maestra Group, working for Premier PR, supplied full sound, lighting and video / AV infrastructure to the UK Film Centre at the 2017 Cannes Film Festival.

A selection of different sized LED and plasma screens were supplied for the main area, where they were inbuilt into the set, plus four of the break-outs including the partners room and for behind the reception desk. These enabled camera and audio relay into all these areas so they could be utilized for overspill audience attending the most popular talks and presentations.

The screens were in use constantly, showing a host of different content in addition to the camera feeds for which Maestra supplied a raft of laptops.

Maestra co-ordinated all the video content on site - motion graphics and additional elements from Premier PR were received in advance, while other material was s shortly before a talk or discussion ¦ all adding to the pressure and excitement of the different events being properly live.

Two robo-cams were part of the package for the main space, operated from the technical booth; set up so selected footage could be quickly edited and uploaded to the www.weareukfilm.com website for on-demand viewing.

Much attention was devoted to all the cable routing which had to be neat and hidden from view to maintain the integrity of the space that was one challenge.

The other main one was the schedule, says Justin. Seminar footage had to be edited quickly on site then uploaded to the website, while the rest of the crew were invariably rehearsing for or running the next one.

The Maestra team was led on site by Carlos Marcus who ensured that a slick, streamlined technical operation helped make the UK Film Centre one of the busiest and most sought-after pavilions of the Festival.
