International 3D Festival Opens in South Korea
The annual event's second edition has invited industry experts from the U.S., China, and France to discuss recent trends in 3D and VFX.
SEOUL — The International 3D Festival 2013 opened Friday in Coex, southern Seoul. Held annually by the South Korean Ministry of Science, ICT and Future Planning, the event has gathered industry insiders from the U.S., China, France, and Japan to discuss recent trends in 3D and VFX.
Korean filmmaker Kim Yong-hwa, who directed the big budget, Korea-China co-production Mr. Go, gave a keynote speech on the globalization of the 3D and VFX industries. Mr. Go is an ambitious creature film featuring some 900 cuts of its lead character, a CG gorilla, and brought in $16.73 million in the Chinese box office this summer.
Taking part in a conference on Ultra High-Definition (UHD) technology are Tom Cosgrove, CEO of U.S. 3D television channel 3NET, and Julien Libouban of France’s 4EVER Engineer. Also taking part are representatives of Korea’s SBS and CJ Hello Vision as well as Japan’s Sony.
Other highlights of the event include the industry screening of Korea’s first 3D filming of a live concert featuring K-pop star G-Dragon. One of a Kind 3D had a successful debut last week in Indonesia, where it is being show in a multi-sensory 4DX theater via CJ CGV.
