Ye Giants of Olde (in 3D)

http://Cross-Eyed 3D (Vimeo)

This is my entry into the 2010 Avant-Garde film contest.  Avant-Garde elements include *SPOLIER ALERT* being in 3D, use of vintage giant LEGO figures, and LEGO cow defecation.  This film addresses the issue LEGO had back in the 1970's where LEGO people were way to big to fit in the LEGO buildings they came with. 

This film is in 3D, so you'll either need to view it using "Cross-Eyed Free Viewing" for the full-color experience (recommended, use Vimeo link) or use 3D glasses (using YouTube's 3D player) by selecting your preferred viewing method from the 3D pop-up menu. (I think "parallel" viewing, like what is used for viewing Magic Eye images, will not work in this case because these images are wider than the width between your eyes.)

To watch the video in 2D, just select "Left Image Only" from the 3D pop-up menu.

For cross-eyed viewing, it also helps to use your right hand to block the right-most image from your right eye and your left hand to block the left-most image from your left eye. The result is that your eyes are slightly crossed and looking through the gap in between your hands.  Remember that your right eye needs to be focused on the left-most image and vice-versa. Another trick that makes cross-eyed viewing a little easier is to sit back from the screen. Cross-eyed viewing takes some effort to learn, but this technique produces vivid, full color images, unlike colored 3D glasses which distort and eliminate some color information. Good luck.

I can only imagine what a pain it must have been to shoot that big set and with two computers capturing frames.
When the film ended and I saw how much running time was left I let out a long groan. I thought there was going to be some long boring titles. However I really enjoyed seeing some pictures of the process and the set.

Anyway as far as the movie goes it was very simple. Not much of a story. The 3D effect was excellent but wasn't used to best effect very often. White text on a black background doesn't get much benefit from 3D. Some of the shots with the car were awesome in 3D.
So I enjoyed you film, especially the cow at the end. Some great animation there, quite fluid and believable..

I could almost see the depth here all right! I like the dialogue. More than half of the duration is titles.
