Andrew’s stereoscopic 3D work has been screened on UK TV and in 3D events and film festivals worldwide receiving many accolades including Best Director for “Situation Vacant“, Excellence in Visual Arts for his animated short “FourPlay 3D”, Best Live Action Short for his first live action 3D film “Cycle (3D)” and a special Director’s Choice Award for his 4 live action 3D short films screened at the LA 3D Film Festival in 2012.
In 2010 Andrew created Scotland’s first 3D music video for “Gloria (The Death of Me)” that was an official selection for a wide range of 3D Events & Film Festivals in the US and Europe.
“Cycle (3D)”, Andrew’s first foray in live action 3D was an original scripted 3D psycological horror short, shot and completed in 2011. This is believed to be the first digital 3D short film made in Scotland.
In 2012 Andrew went on to create 3 more live action shorts “ATM“, “Hidden” and “The Collection” plus a music video for Stevey Hay’s “Kimberley Station“.
“The Collection (3D)” was created as part of the Edinburgh leg of the 48 hour film project and went on to win an award for Production Values in the event. This short film, the first stereoscopic 3D entry into a 48 hour film project outside of America, was also included in the 5th year anniversary Best of 48 Hour Film Project Edinburgh DVD.
Working alongside LowBrow Studios and CollegeHumor.com, Andrew acted as stereoscopic consultant on the 2011 pilot and subsequent 2013 6 episode series of 3D cartoon BearShark which ran on the Nintendo 3DS video channel. Andrew then went on to create the UK’s first 4K 3D project; converting the BearShark episode “Space” for film festival purposes.
On the non-stereoscopic front Andrew created the animated title sequence for the feature film “Electric Man” that had it’s UK premiere at the 2012 Glasgow Film Festival.
