Lots of work on here at Enhanced Dimensions HQ! On top of making “The Collection (3D)” I’ve been finishing off another 3D short (more on that later) and getting involved in a 2D initiative with www.wearenorthernlights.com in Scotland -plus taking a week of to laze in the sun in Malta!
Well the exciting news though is that our short horror film “The Collection (3D)” that we made for the Edinburgh leg of The 48 Hour Film Project was awarded an “Honourable Mention for Production Values” in the award ceremony at Electric Circus on Monday 28th May 2012. Considering this is only our second live action short and that it’s the first 3D short entered into the project outside of the US we were mighty pleased to be recognised. The award recognised the quality of acting, writing, direction & cinematography across the whole piece, and although we’d have preferred the much coveted award for “Best Film” (well who wouldn’t have?) it’s a great award… for the time being.
The Collection (3D) was also chosen as one of a handful of film to represent the 48 hour film project in a “Best of the last 5 years” show at The Cameo in Edinburgh and is also available on the 5th Year Anniversary DVD too! For those of you interested in getting a copy, along with a free pair of anaglyph 3D glasses, just email Sam Goldblatt @ firstname.lastname@example.org and he’ll fill you in on the details.
We had a great time entering the 48 hour film project and got great support from the organisers Sam & Louise, and we met some really exceptional film makers whom I hope we will see go on to become major producers, directors, writers, etc. Finally thanks to all friends, family and colleagues who gave such a level of support and helped us to deliver a cool little 3D short in one crazy weekend!
