Wildscreen Festival 2012 is here

15th October, 2012

The Bristol-based biannual event is back and in its 30th year, celebrating and supporting the wildlife and environmental film-making industry.  With a wide variety of festival programming, one of the many highlights is the 2012 Wildscreen Panda Awards on Thursday 18 October.  The team at ONSIGHT is extremely delighted to see three of our projects shortlisted, in which we provided groundbreaking camera and post solutions.

Congratulations to our clients Atlantic Productions for Flying Monsters 3D (Sky) and Oxford Scientific Films in association with Principal Large Format (National Geographic Channels) for Meerkats 3D.  Both have been nominated for the 'Best 3D Award' in a very strong category.  A further congratulations goes to Atlantic Productions for their most recent production Kingdom of Plants 3D (Sky), in the running for the Disneynature Innovation Award.  It is also fantastic to see none other than Sir David Attenborough nominated for the Presenter-led Award for Flying Monsters 3D, after 60 years in broadcast.

The Panda Awards shortlist was reduced from 491 films originating in 46 countries.  To help compile the final entries, the nomination panel consisted of international production people, each established in their field.  Our very own Chief Technical Officer, Richard Mills, was selected to join the judging jury.

The complete list of nominees can be found here.  We wish our clients good luck!
