+ Call for Entries has been announced for Sony stereoscopic 3D Film Competition. The competition is for budding 3D filmmakers to have the chance to have their work showcased on a 3D Blu-ray Disc that will be given away free with new Sony TVs (Sony BRAVIA 3D TV). Sony is looking for stereoscopic 3D shorts made to work with active shutter technology (ie NOT red-blue anaglyph). Each video sequence should, preferable, be around 5-10 minutes in length. 3D film may consist of character animation, a VFX sequence, motion graphics or a particularly cool arch-viz flythrough. The key factors are that it’s of a professional standard, has good quality stereo 3D, and is suitable for family viewing. The competition is open to anyone capable of producing a stereo 3D video sequence – be it a new short from scratch or re-rendering an existing project in stereo 3D. The closing date for entries is Friday 9th July 2010.You’ll need to render two sequences as single stream progressive scan 1920×1080 24fps (using any codec that plays back on a current non-3D PlayStation 3) with stereo sound – one for right eye, one for left. >> More Information
