In a galaxy far far away… well actually just along the road a couple of years back… we shot a two minute silent short film just for fun inspired by a “Two Minute Silence” competition that Neil Rolland had set-up as part of his Write, Shoot, Cut platform in mid 2013. We had a laugh making it and really enjoyed working with Amanda Marment and Tamas Fazakas to get it done. Our aim was to create a 70’s looking cop show parody and overall the outcome was pretty good.
What interested me most though was the characters that Amanda and Tamas play – Dick Rize and Dawn Shine as they eventually became known: how did they get where they were, why would they want to be cops and what was their wider world like? From that inspiration Rhiannon and I decided to give it a go drafting several episodes that we could possibly produce as a 3D web series. At the same time as undertaking the writing challenge I was keen to move on from shooting with unibody 3d camcorders to shooting with a more advanced stereoscopic rig, which in itself would come to present quite a number of challenges and rather obviously slow us down from our usual run and gun style of shooting. That in itself is a whole other post!
The good news is the series has now (finally) completed post production and we had our cast and crew screening last week where we were finally able to share the fruits of nearly two years of effort – plus we could have a few beers and catch-up with everyone involved who’ve all become close friends. As writer/producer/director it’s difficult for me to be objective so I’m not going to tell you how great the series is – we’ll be sharing this online via The Stereoscopic 3D Channel from July 2015.

Sources from the 3D World Magazine & Sony 3D competition have noted via their forum that around 50 entries were received for the 3d short film competition. Entries came from all over the globe, including Japan, New Zealand, Canada, Mexico and the UK. The good news is, as there are over 50 prizes up for grabs, everyone should get some prize to reward their efforts.
The original plan was to announce the winner at this week’s SIGGRAPH and to showcase the winners there, however the sheer volume of entries has delayed this. Steve from 3D World via the forum said that he expected the winners to be announced once they get back from LA. With SIGGRAPH closing at the end of this week hopefully that means everyone who entered should be hearing in early August.

We’re incredibly pleased to announce that our Stereo 3D group over on Vimeo has hit the 1,000 videos mark. That’s a phenomenal number to have amassed in less than six months and is a testament to the surge of interest with amateur and professional film-makers alike that the resurgence of stereoscopic 3d film has had.
It’s great to see the group growing and it’s a humbling experience to regularly see such great work on the channel. If you’ve not visited it yet grab your 3d specs and come on over.
