EAW® Loudspeakers Provide Great Sound for Doha Tribeca Film Festival
(Press Release | Posted 2009-11-18)
Whitinsville, MA, USA, November 18, 2009 – Doha, Qatar-based Creative Communication Group (often known as “CCG”) is a thriving full-service event management/Production Company and a major player in Qatar and the Middle East for live pro light and sound rental requirements. CCG recently supplied the Doha Tribeca Film Festival with light and sound equipment, including KF760 Long-Throw Line Array Modules from EAW®, a world leader in audio system technology.
The Doha Tribeca Film Festival kicked off on October 29 and lasted for four days, with activities and screening held at several venues. The venue Souq Waqif hosted a special screening of The Mummy (Al-Momia), recently restored by Martin Scorsese’s World Cinema Foundation.
Jalal Dudin, Managing Partner of CCG, stated, “We used EAW KF760 at Souq Waqif to provide the sound for the screening of The Mummy. The sound quality and surround-sound configuration of EAW speakers projected the movie’s sound effects magnificently, especially since it was an open air screening.” Dudin added, “We have also used EAW KF730 Compact Line Array Modules at the auditorium, which was set up at the Qatar Museum of Islamic Art gallery for special screenings of the festival movies for celebrities and VIP invitees.”
“We have worked in association with Michael Rome from Boston Sound and Light, and it was a successful collaboration,” commented Philip Venter, CCG Sound Engineer, adding, “All set-up was up to the standards of Dolby Surround Cinema specifications.”
Inside the Gallery over the festival’s four days, there were screenings and premieres of such films as Cairo Time, Coco Before Chanel and Team Qatar, which won a best film audience award of $50,000, presented by legendary actor and Tribeca co-founder Robert De Niro.
