The Floating Cinema Boat

2012 – ongoing

Broadcasting System + Cinema Space

Following from The Useful Arts involvement in developing the website for the 2011 Floating Cinema Website we were invited to advise on the setup of the equipment for the new Floating Cinema to provide A/V equipment for film presentation and providing live internet streaming from the boat.

The Useful Arts developed a bespoke webcam, GPS tracking and multi-camera streaming solution that could be used on the boat. We worked closely with the commisioners UP Projects, architects Duggan Morris , artists Somewhere and the boat builders at Turks Shipyard, from the initial concept for the boat through the design and build of the boat to make sure the systems were well integrated into the fabric of the boat.

The technology on the boat was integrated into the Floating Cinema website, also developed by The Useful Arts
