Learn 3D Filmmaking in Scotland Summer 2014

We’re proud to announce that we’re running a Scotland’s first 3D filmmaking training course along with SKAMM in Edinburgh for 14 to 21 year olds this summer.

Going from the basics of  stereo 3D filming principles right through to the final edit and depth grading of a 3D short film this course will give attendees handon experience alongside a strong grounding of modern 3D stereoscopic film production.

The course runs from 21st to 25th of July at the Edinburgh College of Art. For more details email skammers@hotmail.com

Loch Ness 3D


.
Situation Vacant has been selected for screening at the annual Loch Ness Film Festival in July.

Situation Vacant is fast becoming our most successful short to date with a dozen film festival screenings and having reached 10,000 views on YouTube within two months. We’re definitely going to attend so if you are at the festival do feel free to come and say hi to us.

You can find out more at the official Loch Ness Film Festival website.

Boom, Boom, Boom – 3-in-3D!

Fantastic news again on the screening front – very pleased to announce that 3 of our 3D short FIlms will be screening at this years Indie Film Con in Indiana, USA.

It’s yet another outing in stereoscopic 3D for our stereoscopic romantic comedy “ATM“, our horror from 2012 “The Collection” and last year’s “Situation Vacant“.

The event occurs from June 6th-8th in Bloomington, Indiana. You can find out more at the Indie Film Con website.

Life in 3D Presentation: Shooting a 3D Film with no time nor money

I had a great time in Edinburgh last week at The Edinburgh 3D Film Festival which I organised alongside the team from Edinburgh College of Art who run the “Life in 3D” Symposium.

I spoke at the symposium on the topic of “Indie 3D – Shooting a 3D film with no time nor budget“, focusing on my team’s approach to the global 48 Hour Film Challenge in which we have competed on 3 occasions; in each case shooting in stereo 3D.

As “Situation Vacant” was screening at the film festival I felt it would be more interesting to discuss our first 48hfp 3D film “The Collection” which we created in May 2012. This film went on to screen in about a dozen festivals around the world, won a couple of awards and has to date had over 120,000 views on YouTube; I’d suggest it’s not a bad case study to share our learnings from. The presentation was created to be stereoscopic although on the day as primary projection facilities were 2D I stuck to this – we did however screen “The Collection” on the 3D Monitor so everyone could see the quality of the 3D product we had created in two very short days. The 2D version of the “Life in 3D” presentation is now available to view on SlideShare.

It’s been an interesting 12 months in terms of actually presenting and training, apart from the usual feedback and use that our visitors have received from our online tutorials, I have been able to get out and run some 3D training sessions for a number of filmmakers from Edinburgh and the surrounding area.

We have an outline for a larger 3D training session which I have been working on for some time and we have had some interest, although at the moment probably not sufficient to run the full course as I’d imagined it. I will keep you updated though as we move forward and find out if this is financially viable.

In the meantime do feel free to use the existing stereo 3D tutorials on YouTube and check out the Enhanced Dimensions presentations on SlideShare.

It’s been a few months of hectic planning but we’re finally live with our week long celebration of 3D Film – The Edinburgh 3D Film Festival 2014.

With that in mind if you want to see some great stereoscopic features or short films head over to the Filmhouse website now and get your tickets – it’s looking likely that these screening will be pretty busy.

Each screening will also feature related talks or question and answer sessions with visiting directors or stereographers.
