ED3D @ Parallax Festival in Prague

Enhanced Dimensions first Festival screening of 2014 has got the year off to an exciting start at the Parallax Festival in the Czech Republic.

Parallax Festival in Prague selected three Enhanced Dimensions films for their short film screening. Namely our 3D Music Video we shot for the late Stevey Hay “Kimberley Station”, our 48 Hour 2013 Best Direction Award winning short “Situation Vacant” and the rarely seen teaser called “UNDERCOVER3D” for our web series Crime Squad which is currently in production.

Thanks again to the organisers for selecting our films and for those of you who might have caught them we do hope you enjoyed viewing them as much as we did making them.

ED3D @ LA 3D Film Festival

Great news on our submissions to LA 3D Film Festival held by our friends over at the LA 3-D Club is that we’ve got three films screening at the event!

Our three latest stereo 3D pieces have been selected for screening  at the Downtown Independent Theater in Los Angeles Dec. 13-15th, 2013. Festival passes are now on sale online for $40, with individual day tickets available from December 1st.

Enhanced Dimensions films included in the program are:

Most exciting is that there are a couple of 3D premiers in the group. Our 2013 48 Hour Film Project film “Situation Vacant 3D” receives it’s 3D global premiere having only previously been screened in 2D, on both occasions winning awards (Best Direction & 3rd Place Palme Dewar), fingers crossed it goes down as well with the appreciative 3D audience! “Crime Squad:UNDERCOVER3D”  is also receiving it’s 3D global premier, this is the the teaser piece for our forthcoming cop comedy web series.

Situation Vacant takes third place

Situation Vacant, our 2013 short film from the Edinburgh 48 Hour Film Project, took 3rd prize at the Palme Dewar event as part of the Aberfeldy Film Festival.

Following last years screening of our ultra short rom-com, ATM 3D, we were again a finalist in the Palme Dewar Film Competition which is sponsored by Dewar’s Whisky and organised by the nice folk of Heartland Film Society up in Aberfeldy.

There were seven finalists’ films screened at the Dewar’s Whisky Visitor Center in their stunning little auditorium. The films topics and styles were very varied from a documentary about nuns, through a second world war bombing drama to romantic comedies. Our film screened in 2D and was last in the sequence of films. Scoring of the films was decided via a mix of judges and audience vote.

The winning films in reverse order were:

Winner John McPhail has also recently won an unprecedented double award in this years Virgin Media Shorts – so we were definitely up against some stiff competition!

3D Film Festivals & Events

3d-films-comprehensive-listI’ve updated the list of stereoscopic 3D Film Festivals and Events. I think it would probably be handy to make a new page for this.  Particularly handy now is that I’ve put the list in date order so you can see where you are in the year.

This Film Festival Calendar now has a permanent page – visit the 3D Film Festival Calender.

Situation Vacant wins Best Direction Award

Fantastic news for our latest short film is that we picked up the Best Direction Award from the 48 Hour Film Project in Edinburgh.

The short’s premiere public screening was at the Cameo Picturehouse Cinema in Edinburgh on 27th August in 2D. The judging panel consisted of George Barr – Head of Greenroom Films, Ian Hoey – Film Critic, Iain Gardner – Short Film Programmer at the Edinburgh International Film Festival.

The 3D version is currently in post production and we hope to have this completed soon. Since our first short live action 3D film in 2011 the team’s output has improved over each project and Situation Vacant is most definitely our best short film to date. It has great pace and energy and works well to deliver a dynamic plot driven story in a very short timeframe.

The film will be available to view in 3D on our YouTube channel shortly, however in the meantime do feel free to visit our Situation Vacant (3D) Page here on the blog and on Facebook.

Situation Vacant (3D)

Whew… that was a tough weekend!

Last weekend we took part (again) in the Edinburgh leg of the 48 Hour Film Project and created a short film from scratch in just two days. Our genre was “Mystery” and we’ve created a pretty mysterious tale called “Situation Vacant”. Without giving away too much the tongue-in-cheek  tagline for it is “In the interview room no-one can hear you scream”.

The film stars Amanda Marment (who will be appearing in our forthcoming web comedy series “Crime Squad”), Nick Cheales who was brilliant in “The Collection” plus Rebecca Ritchie-Smith and James J Robson. It was again shot in 3D and the final stereo 3D film will be released on our YouTube Channel in due course.

Our crew was equally spectacular with not only our usuals of Rhiannon Grist, Rosie Murchie, Dale Peet and Astrid Allan but also our new editor Jose Climaco who did a brilliant edit, and Lucas Kao who was a fantastic support for continuity and logging shots. Of course everyone dives in and helps where-ever they can – it’s really great to have such an enthusiastic non-egotistical bunch of people to make films with!

In the meantime if you’d like to keep up to date with how the film is doing and see some behind the scenes pictures and footage do please check out our Situation Vacant page.
