About

You're familiar with our work (the most recent being the Internet sensation "Apple of My Eye" shot entirely on the iPhone 4 - click video link above). Having recently completed a special project for Steven Spielberg entitled "Head On", it's now time for us to launch into what we've been planning for several months ... "Picture This" ... a story that wouldn't be possible without stereoscopic 3D.

It's a story about a man and a woman that discover something special in the midst of a photographic art gallery in a modern art museum. As the pictures on the walls become real life moving stories, the man and woman together will create a connection in the middle of the gallery, as they pull objects from all the photos in the room. Telling stories on multiple planes, this project will push live action 3D in a way similar to that of Pixar's new "Night & Day" short.

To our knowledge, this will be the first USC film of this scale shot in 3D. With some of the leading innovators in 3D mentoring at USC, we're confident we'll have the people around us to make this 3D short one of the first live action shorts that couldn't be told otherwise except because of 3D.

Unfortunately though, shooting 3D is still expensive - and while we'll have a lot of support and deals given to us, we still want to make sure we take the time and resources to do it correctly. The money contributed to the project will be used to feed our cast and crew, rent equipment, rent locations (there are eight pictures that will need to be individually shot in stereoscopic 3D), and finish a high level of post production ... similar to what you would expect when you watch movies like Avatar, etc.

Join in on the fun.
Even the cost of a coffee would help us make Majek ($5).
We're shooting this Fall.
