Nintendo and the British Film Institute have partnered for a 3DS film-making competition, patronised by director Ridley Scott.
A Vision In 3D offers budding UK film-makers the chance to shoot their own 3D movie with a professional film crew. To enter, you'll need to record a 60-second short film on a 3DS or 3DS XL. Special attention will be given to films demonstrating adherence to the theme, imaginative content and clever use of the 3D technology.
More information, as well as the upload portal, is available on the official site.
"Digital and 3D filmmaking is within the grasp of everyone these days," gushes patron Ridley Scott. "I’m excited by all the skill and talent that’s emerging in the UK, telling stories in different ways and it’s vital that it gets our support. This competition launched by the BFI and Nintendo opens up a big opportunity for emerging filmmakers to make their mark and they should grab it with both hands. I can’t wait to see the results.”
It's great to see Nintendo attempting to do something imaginative with their hardware, not to mention encouraging young talent.
