Images from this year’s Motionplymouth event have been posted online.
The pictures capture some of the highlights of the moving-image festival, including the Civic Centre and Guildhall projections, the Drake Circus Guerilla Gallery, the movies beamed onto the Theatre Royal, imagery from the Vanland editing caravan and the South West Film And Television talks at the Treasury.
Yes, there was certainly a lot going on. Of course, this being Plymouth, there was some carping, with accusations that the event didn’t live up to all the hype. And it’s true, a lot of the projections, at least according to the photos, seemed to consist of a volley of giant BBC and design company logos.
But there was so much other good stuff going on besides, like the movie competition, which was largely ignored by the local media. And we ask you, what’s not impressive about a massive green and white lighthouse projected onto the Civic Centre?!
