Happy New Year to one and all from Enhanced Dimensions. Never afraid to blow our own trumpet(s) I thought today would be a good day to sum up what Enhanced Dimensions has achieved since launch around 15 months ago.
But first a final round-up of our 1,000,000 video views challenge we set ourselves in the last month of 2010. Okay, it was a tough target but that’s the way we like it; make it a real challenge not just a figure that doesn’t have a bit of stretch. However the unfortunate news is we are just short of the 1 million views we’d aimed for – to be accurate we’re 26,711 views short of target. Close enough to smell YouTube’s breath! This number is of views of Stereo 3D videos created entirely by Enhanced Dimensions across our Stereoscopic 3D Channel on YouTube, Vimeo & DailyMotion. We had promised to give £100 to Children in Need if we made the figure, but in the spirit of the season despite our slight shortcoming we will be making this donation anyway.
We’ll soon be posting details on some of our plans for 2011, including expanding our 3d operations to deliver many more exciting 3d projects. Fingers crossed we’ll be able to pull in more awards and also be able to further share our knowledge and experience to the burgeoning 3d skills market.
So 2010 the highlights and numbers:
- being broadcast as part of Channel 4’s 3D Week
- being discussed by Adam and Joe on BBC Radio Six
- picking up an InvaZion Award for our 3D short film “FourPlay”
- being a runner up in Sony’s 3D World Competition for our 3D short film “FourPlay”
- releasing Scotland’s very first 3D music video “Gloria (The Death of Me)” by The Raw I’s
- creating ident bumpers for Short & Sweet 3D (Londons first 3D short festival)
- being a featured Partner on YouTube
- being included on Nvidia’s 3D Vision Live Channel
- having our 3d videos shown at multiple festivals/events around the world
We’ve also released a whole heap of Stereo 3D Training Videos that can be seen on our “3D in a Nutshell” Page. These include videos on:
- Basic Stereoscopic 3D Animation in Adobe After Effects
- Stereoscopic 3D using Displacment Maps and in Adobe After Effects
- A 4 part series on 2D to 3D Conversion Using Adobe After Effects
And don’t forget our Stereoscopic 3D Channel that runs on YouTube, Vimeo and Dailymotion that has in total received:
- Over 970,000 views of our videos
- Over 5000 subscribed viewers
- A fantastic level of positive feedback
And finally our free 3D Downloads including 3D Videos, 3D Desktops, 3D Greeting Cards and 3D Postcards for you to download and print have had coverage online and a huge amount of traffic.
A big thank you to everyone who has helped, everyone who has watched some videos, subscribed fed back, etc. In fact a great big thanks to you all for helping make 2010 such a great year for us.
Stay tuned for 2011, we’re going to take this to a whole new dimension!
