Quantum Digital broadcasts Green Carpet premiere


MUMBAI: Quantum Digital has been selected by Spanner Films and UK indie distributor Dog Woof to coordinate the live filming and satellite broadcast of the world’s first eco-friendly "green carpet" premiere for the documentary The Age of Stupid, which was transmitted live to over 60 UK cinemas on 15 March.

Quantum’s project management also included providing technical support for all cinemas. This very special event received funding from the UK Film Council.

The 7-camera shoot captured all the build-up as the guests arrived on the green carpet en route to the specially erected solar powered tent for the premiere screening, as well as capturing the post-film Q&A which featured director Franny Armstrong and star Pete Postlethwaite.

The event marked the latest in the number of live events produced by Quantum’s Marc John for live broadcast to digital cinemas.
