Brian Lenz, Sky’s Director of TV Product Development, explains, “With the rapid growth of 3D gaming, cinema and the exciting launch of 3D TV, spearheaded by Sky, there are a wide range of creative and commercial opportunities.  However, to position the UK as a true centre of 3D excellence, it’s essential that programme makers invest themselves in the art of 3D, so that we create world leading content.  That’s why we’re supporting valuable training programmes such as this.”

Skillset’s Director of Film, Neil Peplow, adds “3D training is at the top of the agenda for the UK Film Skills Strategy and Skillset is incredibly excited to be funding Advanced 3D alongside Sky. Principal Large Format’s pioneering training programme, delivered by top industry practitioners, will present a necessary and rich overview of 3D. Industry professionals working in the UK Film industry attending these courses will undoubtedly gain a deep, practical understanding of the economical and technological impact of 3D.”

Day One will be held at BAFTA for a maximum of 220 attendees. It will cover everything you need to know in order to decide if your project is right for 3D; whether it’s a feature film, commercial, high end documentary or an ‘as live’ concert. And, if it is right, which rig you should use and the impact your decision has on design, post production, the budget and schedule. There will be networking drinks and a 3D screening at the end of the day.

Days Two and Three will be held at Twickenham Studios (Stage 1) for a maximum of 35 attendees: DoP’s, AC’s, VFX Supers, Editors, Directors and Producers. Attendees on these days will need to have attended Day One. The focus on these days will be intensive, practical 3D movie making, using all the major 3D rigs, monitoring, recording and post production tools, provided by On Sight, Telegenic, SGO Mistika and Mytherapy. There will be networking drinks and 3D screenings on both days.
