BEAM REACH BLASTING chronicles life aboard the Oosterschelde, a three-masted schooner, among crew and trainees on a 500 nautical mile sail across the North Sea.
The film captures the sea and its changing sailing conditions as well as the everyday activities on the ship: physical work and downtime, social interaction and solitude, nocturnal and daytime life.
The film is the result of an artistic collaboration between filmmaker Cecilia Stenbom and musician Chris Sharkey resulting in an experimental documentary, an audio-visual poem about a journey made possible by wind propulsion only.
We provided one of our Panasonic PT-VZ570A projectors to display this work. We projected onto one of our custom made 4.2M screens, that was built on site. The placement of the screen was quite a challenge due to the shape of the gallery. The screen was suspended from 2 very wide rigging points that allowed us to place the screen exactly where we needed it. The projection was accompanied by two DAP CX-6 passive speakers and run from a Brightsign HD220.
