CONGRATULATIONS to the winners of the Best Pitch & Presentation Award!
- 3D VR project: "Jailbirds"
pitched by François Klein (Digital Rise, France) & Thomas Villepoux (Consortium-C, France)
- Feature 3D project: "Hard Reset"
pitched by David Bukstein (BUK Films, USA)
The NEW 3D Film Booster (3DFB) is designed to help independent producers that have projects for innovative 3D contents to give an impulse to these projects.
3DFB can help these producers to find financing and to reach their market and audience. Contents can be stereoscopic-3D films for Cinema or Virtual Reality (VR)!
3DFB is limited to a small number of participants to ensure personal coaching and strong interaction within the group of participants and coaches. 3DFB extend over three days and has the following two main phases.
First, through interactive lectures, participants get information deemed useful (1) for their projects, in particular the latest insights and trends about the 3D film industry & market, the VR revolution, and transmedia storytelling, and (2) for preparing their pitch to potential co-producers and investors.
Second, in light of the above, and in close interaction with the coaches, each participant improves his/her project, prepares a project presentation, and pitches it to a panel of potential co-producers and financiers. By pitching their project, participants have a chance to win the Best Project & Pitch Award.
We wish 3DFB to rapidly become known as the place in the world where holders of innovative 3D content projects in development can, at the end of the event, go home with the appropriate funding to complete their project.
3DFB is organized in collaboration with Sylvain Grain, a renowned 3D expert and award-winning producer.
Independent producers who have a 3D content project in development (film, VR,...) and who wish to give their projects impulses to get financing and to reach their market and audience.
