Digital backdrop for Christine & the Queens music video

The LIMELITE film service production house relied on a Screenberry media server to power the digital backdrop for the “Girlfriend” music video by French indie pop band Christine & the Queens.

The action takes place on a skyscraper construction site against the backdrop of a city skyline. Screenberry was used to create a realistic urban video panorama on a huge 23х8m rear projection screen. The media server controlled and automatically aligned 2х3 stacked Christie S+20k, DLP, 20000 Lm projectors.

The use of the rear projection setup instead of a chroma key (green screen) allowed the client to reduce costs and speed up the post-production process. This solution also helped to give the final music video a natural and vintage look. 

“Thanks to Screenberry’s automatic calibration, we matched the projectors perfectly to create a truly seamless panorama. It’s critical when you use a projection screen as a backdrop for shooting because the camera would capture any tiny color or geometry mismatch,” says Yuri Kostenko, CEO of Front Pictures.
