Folly, who are preparing a Blender workshop for the f.city exhibition in Lancaster, UK, are now also working on a 3D festival and they are looking for 3D content.
Programme Manager Mark Daniels writes:
As part of the forthcoming f.city digital arts festival, folly is looking for a selection of international artist's short films that have either been produced using 3D modelling software such as www.blender.org OR are best viewed using 3D glasses with anaglyph (red/cyan) or polarising filters.
Films can be up to 30 mins in length, and must be submitted on DVD or digitally via ftp or a weblink by 4pm GMT on the 24th of August 2006. Submission forms can be obtained from [email protected]
The final selection of short films will be shown at a special free film night to compliment â€˜Perimeters, Boundaries & Borders', a major new group exhibition of contemporary art and design practice that explores the use of digital technologies and the convergence of practice between architecture, sculpture and product design.
For further information about folly and f.city please visit our website at www.folly.co.uk or contact [email protected] if you require any more information about the 3D film night.
Please send your 3D shorts to:

there's a 64k demo by fr-029: dopplerdefekt by farbrausch, but it doesn't qualify because it's a real time application, right?
u can look it up at http://www.farbrausch.de/
Why don't they just render Elephants Dream as an anaglyph? It shouldn't be too hard with two cameras in two different render layers and the Blender Compositor.
I think you would have to space the cameras out on the x-axis in the projected distance between both eyes, but after changing that in _every_ shot... It would be possible. maybe. well, ok, probably not even worth it, since none of the shots already there are designed to "jump out" at the viewer, by approaching very close to the camera. It would probably be better to start from scratch and create eye-popping scenes with things jumping out all over the place.
'just render it'? :) It took a few hundred hours on a renderfarm to render and this would take twice as long.. In fact, at Siggraph we met people from Perdue University who also had a stereoscopic projection system and they asked the same question. I'm guessing that the rendertime is also one of the reasons that you don't really see any modified Elephants Dream versions..
that would be because they are still rendering.... :-)
