Revolution Productions is an AV rental and video production company based in Northern Ireland that delivers both hybrid and virtual events all over N.I. and further afield. Director and founder of Revolution Productions, Gordon Cross, has always had a passion for cameras, content and visuals, which is why the company opted for AV Stumpfl to deliver the brief for Pride 2022 in Belfast.
“A member of the Belfast Pride production team looked after the slide and video content that is fed to the screen,” explains Cross. “There were some relay TV screens supplied by the venue, and in a room as grand as the great hall [in Belfast City Hall] we needed something that would be impactful and visible for all. The Monoblox32 508x294 FP 16:9 was the perfect choice.”
Joni Millar, operations manager at Revolution Productions, adds that the Monoblox screen was used as the “main event” screen for Pride: “It formed the backdrop for the stage and subsequently the whole event. It was used to play highlight videos from 2019, promotional content for upcoming events, sponsors’ logos, and Pride’s ‘Community United in Diversity’ message as guests arrived.”
Revolution Productions was the sole technical supplier for this event. The team supplied the PA system, lighting and projection for the install, operating all of the sound and lights on the night.
AV Stumpfl screens are highly regarded by Revolution Productions, praising their simplicity and effectiveness whether using the screen solo or flown as part of a larger set-up. The event specialist states that even after a number of years and extensive use, they are “rock solid and reliable” every time.
“Belfast Pride Awards utilised our 5m x 3m screen on legs, as it sat on the raised stage surface,” continues Cross. “It was perfect for the award winners and sponsors to pass in front of the screen.”
Monoblox is the mobile projection screen chosen by world-leading rental and staging companies. The acclaimed screen system is available in a great number of different sizes and aspect ratios, making it perfect for any rental-staging application.
Its highly engineered, auto locking snap joints have been road tested to last – with one button to push and release – to provide greater durability at the folding hinge points.
Belfast hosted the biggest LGBTQ+ festival in Northern Ireland, which brought together a whole team of people to make it happen.
Revolution Productions confirmed it was a great night for the LGBTQ+ community who got to enjoy and celebrate everything that is wonderful about Belfast pride. “And they did so in style!” concludes Cross.
