In June, ABD attended the premiere of Girl’s latest film project, Unbeleafable, and had the chance to catch up with director Ty Evans on what it was like creating the world’s first full-color stereoscopic 3D skateboarding film.
Produced by Filmmakers Entertainment in conjunction with the MOCA exhibition Art in the Streets and the Levi’s Film Workshop, Ty and The Astronauts Guild had the opportunity to shoot on the new Phantom 65-Z3D and two RED M-X cameras on an Element Technica Quasar 3D beam splitter rig.
The bleeding edge of technology isn’t always a fun place to be. Ty, the skaters, the crew and many volunteers battled some serious hurdles within an incredibly tight timeframe to create a truly memorable adventure to the forest of skateboarders’ dreams. In no way does watching Unbeleafable on the internet do justice to the film that was produced. Since it probably won’t wind up in your local movie theater any time soon, your best option for viewing the film as it was meant to be seen is to watch the embedded YouTube video on a 3D TV. Unbeleafable will also be available on the upcoming Chocolate Blu-Ray, set to release Holiday 2011.
Featured skaters are Vincent Alvarez, Eric Koston, Kenny Anderson, Elijah Berle, Chico Brenes, Justin Eldridge, Cory Kennedy, Stevie Perez,
Chris Roberts, Raven Tershy, Jeron Wilson, Shane O’Neill and Ryan Spencer.
