PassmoreLab’s New Psycho Thriller Takes on Orlando After Winning “Best 3D”Award at 3DFF Hollywood

After taking home first place at the 3D Film Festival in Hollywood last month for their new independent film “Iron Doors 3D”, San Diego-based 3D Production studio PassmoreLab and FullFeedback Productions of Germany will screen the film at the Orlando Film Festival today. The co-producers took home the top prize in the 3D Narrative Feature Film (Conversion) category.

The International 3D Society announced today that Panasonic Corporation (NYSE:PC) will assume Co-chair of its Worldwide Education committee and become its official technology partner. In this capacity, Panasonic will provide 3D technology at instructional events produced by the International 3D Society in the USA, Europe, and Asia

The purpose of the program is to establish a curriculum of technical and creative coursework for video industry professionals in key production markets around the globe, as 3D technology is rapidly advancing. The International 3D Society’s 3D University series has attracted over 700 professional participants in Los Angeles in its first nine weeks of the program.

As 3DTVs roll out in the consumer market, there is a pressing need for stereoscopic content. To address this issue, broadcast and postproduction technology manufacturer Teranex is launching 2D-to-3D conversion software next month in the U.S.

Aimed at broadcasters, the software is designed for real-time conversion of live events or library titles for television.

After making spooky flicks such as Raaz, 1920  and Shaapit, director Vikram Bhatt is back with his latest venture Haunted. The USP of the film is that it is India's first stereoscopic 3D Horror film. Haunted stars Mahakshay Chakraborty (earlier known as Mimoh) and newcomer Tia Bajpai in lead roles.

The story has been penned by Vikram Bhatt himself, and revolves around certain happenings in a house with a secret past and a haunted present.
