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 the Harkness 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 most remembered for his iconic roles including Prince Vultan in 1980s 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,” vice president global marketing 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 that the Harklets help convey our incredible passion for the cinema industry.”

The Harklets received its world premiere at the International Cinema Technology Association seminar at CineEurope June 19 and 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.
