Start-up UK and Beijing-based production company Parc Media has unveiled a slate of three China-UK co-productions, two of which will use Douglas Trumbull’s new MAGI 3D process.

The new technology is designed to capture and display images at 120 frames per second in 4K and 3D on giant screens using conventional digital projectors.

The first Parc Media project scheduled to shoot with MAGI 3D is previously-announced fantasy adventure The Wonder 3D, which will be co-produced by China’s Show + Share Investment.

Peter Hewitt is directing the $20m project with Karl Urban and Willow Shields heading the cast.

Parc Media also plans to co-produce $60m sci-fi epic StarSailor, written and to be directed by Trumbull and designed for MAGI 3D. The producers are in talks with potential Chinese government financiers.

Finally, Parc Media is also teaming with China’s Central New Film Group (CNFG) on $30m Sino-UK co-production Angel In The Dark, which is not planning to use the technology.

CNFG is the feature film division of state-owned broadcaster Central China Television (CCTV).

It is expected that both Angel In The Dark and StarSailor will be made under the official China-UK co-production treaty, once it has been ratified.

The slate was announced at an event in Beijing on Jan 27, where Trumbull Studios’ short film UFOTOG was screened to demonstrate the MAGI 3D process. Trumbull and production designer David L. Snyder – who worked with Trumbull on Blade Runner and is also working on The Wonder 3D and StarSailor – both attended the event.

Based in Beijing and London, with an associated office in New Zealand, Parc Media is founded by producers Robert Sidaway, Weimin Lui, Iain Brown, Chun Yi Yueh and Ashley Sidaway.

Focusing on co-productions between China and the West, the company plans to deliver film, theatre and television product.
