A Screen South & Visual Effects Research Lab Dundee Collaboration

As the name implies the new Innovation Shorts Programme aims to support the production of short films with innovation at their heart, e.g. strong story telling and a key focus on using new technology – for example, 3-D, Visual Effects or Motion Capture. The programme is open to directors based in the Screen South region, but producers can be based anywhere in the region covered by North Sea Screen Partners. Three projects will be offered awards of up to £20,000 each as a cash budget for production and Post Production.

The Shorts will be Produced from NSSP member Screen South's Kent office and Post Production will be delivered by the Visual Eeffects Research Lab (VERL) at Duncan of Jordanstone College of Art and Design, University of Dundee. The VERL will offer pre-production supervision, visual effects on set supervision, 3D CGI elements (Maya) Compositing (Nuke) with Sterescopic 3D capability (Ocula)

The short script must be developed on submission as there will be a fast turnaround into production in May with delivery of films by 1st September 2011.
