To give you a little flavour of what excites us about the potential use of Stereo 3D in independent cinema, this podcast from 2013 features an interview with past Lab participants discussing what they learnt in the previous Cross Channel Film Lab programme.  The session starts with an overview of the Stereo 3D market of late 2013.

Can Stereo 3D still attract an audience, and if so, what opportunities exist for filmmakers working on low to medium budget feature films to make the most of Stereo 3D?


The podcast was recorded at a panel discussion at the Cornwall Film Festival featuring Alex Stolz, Head of Distribution at the BFI, and Denzil Monk (producer) and Will Coleman (co-writer), two members of the team behind One and All, one of the two Stereo 3D projects that went through the Cross Channel Film Lab in 2013.

First, Alex presented an overview of recent audience figures for Stereo 3D films in the UK, prior to the release of Gravity (which was discussed a lot!).  Then, Denzil and Will shared their thoughts on how Stereo 3D can change the cinema experience and be a powerful creative inspiration, as well as exploring the challenges faced by producers of focusing strongly on Stereo 3D.

Many thanks to Benjamin Pugh of Screen! Out Loud for recording the session, and Tiffany Holmes of the Cornwall Film Festival for hosting us.

This workshop formed part of the Open Sessions programme supported by Creative Skillset Film Skills Fund as part of A Bigger Future 2, and INTERREG IV A France (Channel) – England, co-funded by the ERDF.
