3net Studios announces first production lineup | Deadline.com

November 14, 2012

From Deadline.com on 11/14/12

Almost a month after the joint venture of Sony, Discovery and IMAX announced it was creating 3net Studios to produce native 3D content, 3D TV network 3net has unveiled the unit’s initial slate of live-action and animated series and specials. The lineup includes Space, billed as the first native 4K project for television; and the motion comics series Marksmen. Here are the network’s descriptions of the new projects:

SPACE

From the Big Bang to the present and forward into the future, Space gives a vision of the birth, evolution and end of the phenomena that make up the universe as never seen before. Billed as the world’s first native 4K project for television, the series employs lyrical and deeply stereoscopic 3D and Ultra HD shots to immerse the viewer within space itself as concepts are presented with relatable visual storytelling. What’s the view like from inside a nebula, or a comet’s tail? What does traveling at the speed of light really look like, and just how hot is the planet Mercury? Each hour long episode of this three-part series won’t just answer these questions, it will also offer viewers an unprecedented opportunity to experience the answers through the use of breakthrough 3D and 4K production techniques. A 3net Studios original production in association with Percolate Digital.

MARKSMEN

This innovative 3D stop-motion graphic novel series takes viewers into a post-apocalyptic wasteland – following the government collapse, a civil war erupts between two cities as they fight for control of the world’s scarce remaining resources. Rebuilt by a group of top scientists and protected by the Navy Seals stationed at the Coronado Navel Base, “New San Diego” is a technological utopia that lives in peace and must defend itself against the oil-hungry and war driven, “Lone Star.” This half-hour, four-part series follows Drake McCoy and his band of high-tech soldiers, the “Marksmen,” on their heroic quest to protect “New San Diego” from total annihilation. A 3net Studios original production in association with Jump! 3D.

FROZEN IN TIME: OUR HISTORY IN 3D

This three-part, hour-long original 3D series takes an immersive look at history’s most monumental milestones – from World War II to the Industrial Revolution and the migration to the American West. The series makes unique use of historic and captivating original 3D photographs – fully restored and presented in their true native form for the first time ever. A 3net Studios original production in association with Tom Jennings Productions/1895 Films.

WINGSUIT WARRIOR: JEB CORLISS VS. THE WORLD

Renowned BASE jumper and wingsuit pioneer Jeb Corliss tragically crashed while wingsuit flying in Capetown, South Africa. The debilitating crash in early 2012 caused Jeb to break his leg, both ankles and opened a deep, gaping hole in his shin. This hour-long original 3D special follows Jeb and wingsuit expert Joby Ogwyn as they take viewers through the arduous process of rehab, re-learning the skills of wingsuit flying and tackling some of the biggest mountains in Europe. Viewers will hear and see their incredible journey as they prepare to face their demons and find redemption on the deadly slope of Table Mountain in Cape Town, where Jeb came close to losing his life. A 3net Studios original production in association with New Wave Entertainment.

DAYDREAM

Spanning both popular and exotic geographic locations, DAYDREAM delivers stunning visual 3D imagery, offering viewers an immersive look at the earth and mankind’s most spectacular creations. Each episode takes viewers on a 3D “travel adventure” to a unique and iconic destination, offering a visual escape as the day passes in each location. Produced by Z3D Films – a wholly-owned subsidiary of 3net Studios.

  1. In spite of the fear rampant in the media financing community, 3D content is the safest bet in Show-Biz. Why? 3D is an emerging disruptive technology. 3D content will hold library value for decades to come. The best will be candidates for evergreen status.

    Unfortunately, the ego of the investor trumps the ego of the creator. I don’t know how to change this sorry state of affairs, but I do urge all involved in seeking funding for 3D projects to focus investor attention on the long term over the short term. Repeat after me: “In five years, all TV will be 3D TV”.

    If you don’t buy into that vision, then you will never make a cent from 3D content production. Unless…yes, I see it now…..3D HSN TV. First sell the 3D TVs on HSN, then sell the jewelry in stunning Hi-Def 3D close-ups that you can almost reach out an touch. Now, where did I leave that telephone, dammit?
