Citoc constantly strives at maintaining the highest quality of not only choosing its content but also its production and distribution quality. While the aim is to document and archive to a large extent as many stories from theatre as possible, the creative team looks at stories that translate well into the format of CinePlays, in order to be able to present you with the best experience and content possible.
CinePlay is an innovative format of cinema that presents timeless stories as a digitally-immersive experience, and is calibrated for a uniform experience across all screen sizes. These are stories that provoke thought, tease the mind, and prevail upon you. These are stories that never go away; they stay with you. These are stories that live forever.
No, CinePlays are far from just a live recording of a play. Sets are created especially for each production and much like a film, a CinePlay is shot over a span of a several days. This style of production allows us to ensure the highest quality and give each story what it needs to be told best. With an elaborate camera, light and production set up, CinePlays weaves elements of cinema into stories from theatre to create a whole new experience for audiences.
CinePlays are available in a number of formats ranging from HD to 4K, making them compatible with both online streaming and projection on larger screen sizes. As stated above, all of our films are specially calibrated for a uniform experience across all screen sizes, so it doesn’t matter whether you are watching CinePlays on-the-go or watching it in the theatre, we ensure your experience.
