Here is a short 3D teaser trailer for Stuart and Julia’s wedding film shot in stereoscopic 3D on 5K resolution RED Epic cameras, claimed by its authors to be the first such. The Mirador Estate in beautiful Montecito near Santa Barbara provided an idyllic garden in full spring bloom, resulting in some gorgeous 3D visuals to complement the bride and groom. Shot and edited by Golden Gate 3D, the entire production was designed around creating a cinematic experience to envelop viewers in seamless 3D that provides a flowing narrative and sweeping scale to the proceedings – the ultimate in futureproof mementos of this special day, able to be enjoyed on the latest technology for decades to come.
The video has been made from the same team of people that did the spectacular Deus Ex Homine stereo 3D moco time-lapse video of an Francisco. As usual feel free to share your feedback about the video after watching it.
Through the Eye of the Needle 3D is an ongoing movie project by Cristian Blaze, hist short stereoscopic 3D movie Defending Maldito was already featured here on the blog. Cristian is trying to do a crowd funding campaign to raise the money for shooting the movie in stereo 3D, so if you like the idea and want to help feel free to do so.
Through the Eye of the Needle Synopsis:
Carlos, a Salvadoran war orphan, escapes to the USA in search of a better life. Forced to join an LA gang in order to survive, his dreams of a better life quickly deteriorate… “Why fall in love with life, if we all marry death in the end? ” In a twist of fate, Carlos is re-united with his father, a rich North American textile mogul, who suddenly dies of cancer, leaving Carlos the company and the entire family fortune. Armed with money and power, Carlos finds himself thrust into a world of corporate greed and deception, and it isn’t long before his gang past catches up with him. But it isn’t until he finds out he is a father himself and sees his daughter for the first time that Carlos finally realizes: “Life is only worth living, when you live it for someone else.”
“Through the Eye of the Needle” (TEN) was inspired by the common threads that link the U.S. and Salvadoran history together. Violence breeds violence, hate breeds hate, and the Salvadoran civil war was no exception. Some of the common social problems facing both countries today, from immigration, drugs and gang violence, to sweatshops, famine and poverty, are a direct result of the U.S. involvement in the Salvadoran civil war in the 1980’s. “Through the Eye of the Needle” can, in some ways, be thought of as a visual representation of U.S. foreign policy, and its ramifications around the globe. From all over the world, the stories of most immigrants to the USA share common threads; the pursuit of the ‘American Dream’… Ironically, most people who are fleeing to the USA, are from countries hampered by war tied to the USA to begin with.
San Base, Canadian digital artist, a pioneer of a new medium of art that utilizes the classical elements of painting, while harnessing the power of computer technology to bring two drastically different disciplines together, creating the so called Dynamic Paintings. Dynamic Paintings are created by conceiving an idea, selecting basic colors, shapes and principles of development. Using a wide array of techniques that have deep roots in the styles of conventional painting, San Base converts brush strokes into algorithms. These algorithms represent the “DNA” of the picture like the DNA of a living organism. With a slight mutation; the image algorithm can produce an infinite number of unique paintings. This “mutation” process can be slowly animated over time to produce a fluid motion within the element of a painting; producing a magnificent never-ending and never repeating show.
San Base has released a Blu-ray 3D disc called “The Function of Reality” where Dynamic Paintings are combined with stereoscopic 3D technology to provide an even interesting experience. The full movie is 75 minutes long and is being sold on Blu-ray 3D for $24.95 USD, and there are two sample videos in Side by Side format that you can download and watch on your PC as well as a Blu-ray 3D demo in the form of an ISO image, also available for download. As usual, if you watch the stereo 3D videos please feel free to share your feedback.
