Augstākā Pilotāža 3D (Masterpiece 3D) Latvian Stereoscopic Short Film

"Augstākā Pilotāža 3D" (Masterpiece 3D) is a short film made in one day within 3D workshop in Liepāja (Latvia) by VKKlubs team members and audiovisual students of University of Liepāja. It's also one of the first 3D short films to come out of Eastern Europe. It's not subtitled but we hope you can enjoy it nonetheless.

While there are some little technical issues one might expect from a film produced as part of a first attempt, the organizers of this 3D workshop and the Indiana University class have the right idea: have people learn 3D by making a short narrative that combines various types of shots, locations, and all the normal production situations one would experience in the production of a short film. Workshops that simply train how to operate a camera, or how to align a rig, etc. are important for gaining technical knowledge but in my opinion the best way to learn both the technical and the aesthetic side of 3D narrative filmmaking is from practical experience, and seeing for yourself what works and what doesn't. 

Now go out and shoot something!
