3D Film Factory’s Successful 3D Workshops Now Offer

3D Certification

Since 2008 the

3D Film Factory

(3DFF) has successful taught more individuals how to prep, shoot and edit stereoscopic 3D than any other organization. Why‘ve we been so successful? Because we don’t just teach 3D – we shoot it too. And now for the first time – 3DFF is going to give participants the opportunity to get Certified in Stereoscopic Filmmaking. What does that mean to be certified in stereography? For us it’s a lot more than just a piece of paper. It’s an assurance of superior training. It signifies that program participants have undergone 2-days of intensive, high-level instruction with an experienced, veteran stereographer. Certification means that participants not only have a comprehensive understanding and working knowledge of stereoscopic theory, but that they have the actual skills to shoot and edit professional-quality 3D. A partial list of workshops topics include; the guiding principles and overlying theory of stereoscopic 3D, how to make effective use of 3D, prepping for 3D, transforming your 2D ideas into working 3D images, camera and 3D rig selection, genlock issues, rig calibration, re-light for 3D, filming ratios demystified, gauging depth and pop, applying effective convergence, perfect image alignment, easy 3D post workflows, and all the other details you need to know to create superior quality 3D entertainment, that ultimately serves the story. All classes are taught by veteran stereographers (3D experts) with years of 3D filming and production experience. The goal is to teach participants as much as feasibly possible within the2-days, and therefore keep the focus on the students and their implicit educational needs. 3D Training Workshops are held on an ongoing monthly basis at our facility in San Diego, California. We supply everything, including the cameras, 3D rigs, 3D monitors, lighting and lunch - all for a very affordable price. For scheduling and registration information call 619.384.4014 or visit at

Bluebell Triple Stack Silhouette

Bluebell Opticom at the 2018 NAB Show

At the 2018 NAB Show, Bluebell will demonstrate the Silhouette line of rugged, deployable, high-density, mixed-technology media converters. The heart of the Silhouette power-insertion product family for robotic cameras in remote production scenarios, the Silhouette is a fully integrated 4K UHD robotic head system that works with SD-SDI, HD-SDI, 3G-SDI, and 4K UHD cameras to provide power and control to the camera head and fibre optic connectivity for the remote-control panel. As a result, operators no longer need to rely on stadium power. The customizable Silhouette comes in three sizes and can accommodate any combination of 4K HDR, quad 3G-SDI, trilevel sync, GigE, serial data control, communications, IFB, and multichannel audio signals. Customers can choose to get power from a 12V DC supply, a V-Mount battery, a hybrid cable, or a combination of the three. Introduced at IBC2017, Silhouette units are deployed all over the world in sports, theatre, and music venues.
