Production outfit Principal Large Format (PLF) will run a three-day 3-D training event in London (Jan 25-7)

The course is presented by PLF in association with film and TV consultancy Talking Point and funded by the Skillset Film Skills Fund and Sky.

‘Advanced 3D – The National Stereoscopic 3D Training Programme’ will take place at BAFTA and Twickenham Studios.

The opening day at BAFTA will be an introductory and need to know session for delegates interested in shooting feature films, commercials, high-end documentaries or live performances in 3-D. The remaining two days at Twickenham Studios will provide a more practical guide to 3D film-making, using major 3D rigs as well as monitoring, recording and post-production tools.

Principal Large Format’s pioneering training programme, delivered by top industry practitioners, will present a necessary and rich overview of 3D. Industry professionals working in the UK Film industry attending these courses will undoubtedly gain a deep, practical understanding of the economical and technological impact of 3D.”
