STEREOSCOPIC 3D COURSES
Stereoscopic 3D Training
AV8 Media is proud to be the first in Asia to teach 3D Stereoscopic Film Making. We offer several classes which cover everything you need to know if you want to get in on this cutting edge field. Our classes are modular,so you can sign up for just the beginner classes to get a grasp of what's involved and then decide if you want to pursue more specialised areas in stereography. Alternatively,you can take the complete program for an intensive learning experience.
MDA subsidies of up to 90% are available for Singaporeans and PR media practitioners who attend any or all of our S3D classes. Attendees pay the subsidised rate while MDA would pay the remaining amount to AV8 through Six Degrees..
Please note that availability and amount of subsidy is determined by MDA and Six Degrees
Media freelancers can also apply for a training allowance of S$ 7.50 per hour
Total training allowance for the 6 day course would work out to about S$ 315.00
Here's what attendees have to say
“For an in depth understanding of Stereoscopic 3D workflow, this course is essential. Ian Wee is a knowledgeable trainer who’s obvious passion for the techniques involved makes the subject matter enjoyable learning.I’m enlightened regarding stereography and look forward to using the techniques learned within my company”
Mark Garratt , ESPN Star Sports
“Great 3D Stereoscopy course. Highly recommended to anyone interested in 3D film or 3D stereoscopy.”

Why train with us ?
Our instructors have all worked with Widescreen Media ,Asia's leading S3D production company. They're industry professionals with a wide range of practical on set experience in the exciting new field of Stereoscopic 3D. Even before James Cameron's Avatar hit the screens,Widescreen was already working on Amphibious 3D ,a stereoscopic 3D feature film shot in Indonesia.
Their most recent high profile job was providing S3D consultation for Tsui Hark,for the first S3D martial arts feature film,Flying Swords of Dragon Gate,starring Jet Li. It has become one of China's highest grossing films. They've also provided S3D consultation for Taiwanese band Mayday's 3DNA concert film. They've also shot a range of other S3D content for TV and for corporate clients including MDA's Mediafusion corporate video and Singtel's Youth Olympic Games promo video.
You'll be using equipment and workflows that have been tried and tested in the field ,with loads on hands on practice. You'll also dissect the S3D behind movies like Hugo,Tintin and Despicable Me by analysing scenes from those movies.
ABOUT THE INSTRUCTORS
Ian Wee Woon Hui has had a lifelong fascination with the moving image. From as young as 14 he was already experimenting with digital film making. He graduated with a Merit Diploma in Film, Sound & Video from the School of Film and Media Studies (Ngee Ann Polytechnic) .
He was a first mover in the world of HD, directing one of Singapore's first HD shoots during the F1 Powerboat races held here. During this shoot Ian designed workflows and helped to troubleshoot the problems that ensued from combining different HD formats into one finished product. He has also directed documentaries for Discovery Channel,National Geographic ,Channel News Asia and Arts Central.
He is now a first mover in the brand new field of Stereoscopic 3D film making. With the help of the Media Development Authority ,Ian and his business partner Kevin Lau from Widescreen Media attended specialised Stereoscopic 3D courses in Germany. This gave them an an opportunity to work with leading stereographers and stereoscopic 3D equipment manufacturers. With the experienced gained there and in the US,Widescreen became one of the first production companies in Asia with the capability and equipment to shoot live action 3D.Their most recent high profile project is Tsui hark's Flying Swords of Dragon Gate 3D,the worlds first S3D martial arts feature film.
Azhar Shukor graduated with first-class honours from Nanyang Technological University School of Art, Design and Media Digital Filmmaking course. The NTU President Research Scholar is a recipient of the Media Development Authority of Singapore (MDA) MES Scholarship , the Goh Chok Tong Youth Promise Award and the Ministry of Education (MOE) Art Elective Scholarship
His works have been shown in various festivals and exhibitions in Baltimore, Bangkok, Berlin, Hong Kong, Los Angeles, New York, Romania and Singapore. Having won the Grand Jury Award for ‘Baju’ at Singapore Malay Film Society’s Purnama Film Event in 2009 and nominated for the Green Chillies Award at Asian Hot Shots Berlin Film Festival in 2010, Azhar Shukor aspires to continue experimenting with the cinematic language by embracing new techniques and technology.
Always looking for fresh perspectives, Azhar Shukor joined Widescreen Media to explore the visual language of Stereoscopic 3D. To date he has been involved in various Stereoscopic 3D productions in Dubai, Turkey, China, Malaysia and Singapore. These include ‘Detective Dee, The Prequel’ (2012,Hengdian),Ghost Wedding(2011/2012,Beijing) and The Hunter’ (2011,Malaysia).Through various corporate and feature film projects, Azhar Shukor has progressively handled complex techniques such as 3D helicopter shots and 3D car-mount shots. His experiences have reaffirmed his believes that if we are to approach Stereoscopic 3D with great curiosity, something special is bound to happen
