P3DHD LLC and Grey Area FilmWorks LLC, two Dallas-based companies, have collaborated to produce the 3D HD version of Zero One. The film was written, directed and produced by Kareem N. Gray, the Managing Director of Grey Area FilmWorks. The feature length film is the catalyst for an upcoming science fiction 3D TV series, The Zero One Mandate. A free screening will be held Dec. 19 in Carrollton.
Zero One features Devon Owens, a talented yet troubled young man who unlocks an artificial intelligence program; code named 01. Through interaction with 01, Devon’s concept of humanity is challenged and the fate of mankind may rest in his hands.
Gray was the winner of the 10th Annual Dallas Black Film Festival for 2012. The movie has been well received by film festivals throughout 2012. Awards won this year include best screenplay and music at the 37th Annual Boston Sci-Fi Film Festival and it was also an Official Selection of the 2012 London Sci-Fi film festival.
“Independent producers have a hard time raising funds for production, much less the 3D process” said Gray.
Alan Hoffman of P3DHD said, “After Kareem saw some sample footage of what we could do in our Dallas production center, he was sold. We then decided to collaborate on the production and Kareem felt the results exceeded his expectations. It took us less than a week to do the 3D production work.”
The 3D market is growing rapidly. A majority of TVs over 50” are now equipped to display 3D. Movie lovers are continually seeking more quality content.
Dallas-based P3DHD utilizes its proprietary process to convert existing 2D content into true 1080p 3D content in a timely and cost effective manner. This opens up the opportunity to convert thousands of titles from classic content all the way to new productions such as Zero One.
“The P3DHD process is hardware neutral, producing exceptional 3D content that works with all display technologies; active glasses, passive glasses, glasses-free (autostereoscopic) displays and DCP file for large screen cinema viewing.”
Moviegoers can attend a free screening of Zero One: The 3D Experience on Wednesday, Dec. 19 at 7 p.m. at The Venetian Theaters Movie Bar & Grill located at 2661 Midway Road #200 in Carrollton. Seating is limited, and to receive a ticket call the theater at 972-733-0285 or visit the box office.
