HARKNESS SCREENS INTRODUCES THE HARKLETS - FEATURING THE VOICE OF BRIAN BLESSED OBE.

CINE EUROPE, BARCELONA, SPAIN, JUNE 21ST 2016 — Harkness Screens the world’s leading screen technology company and thought-leaders in on-screen brightness has launched its new storytelling animated characters, the Harklets.

Designed to help educate and inform the movie industry in a simple and fun way, the Harklets are set to tackle a number of cinema-related subjects starting with Harkness’ leading 3D digital surveying service, Reality Capture.

‘The Harklets in Reality Capture for Cinema’ is a short, fully animated adventure voiced by legendary British actor and explorer Brian Blessed OBE.  Famed for his big booming voice and personality, he is famous for his iconic roles including Prince Vultan in 1980 cult movie Flash Gordon, as the voice of Boss Nass in Star Wars: The Phantom Menace and in countless Shakespearean productions on both stage and film.

“This is a landmark day in the evolution of our messaging, says Richard Mitchell,” VP Global Marketing and Commercial Development at Harkness Screens.  “Over the past five years we’ve spent considerable time and energy finding new ways to educate and communicate with the industry be it presentations, web seminars, apps or augmented reality. We’ve tried to do things differently, to inject fun and vigour into our brand whilst conveying very serious subjects.  The Harklets is a continuation of that and we believe this conveys our incredible passion for the cinema industry,” he adds.

Having received its world premiere at the International Cinema Technology Association seminar at CineEurope on 19th June, ‘The Harklets in Reality Capture for Cinema’ movie can now be found online across various video sharing sites including YouTube.

Reality Capture from Harkness Screens is an affordable service providing exhibitors, project managers and architects with a rapid 3D digital surveying service designed to authenticate existing building drawings (2D CAD or 3D BIM) and provide accurate information and platforms for building performance simulation.
