Hollywood gave us the first three-dimensional movie 58 years ago, but until now you have not been able to have your own personal moment captured in Sony 3D’s breathtaking reality.
If you had a chance to record a single moment in your life in 3D, what moment would you choose? Your wedding? Graduation? Maybe it was a game winning goal or the first time your band faced an audience. Imagine that event captured forever in Sony 3D — your own little reality show, shot by pros using Sony professional 3D equipment and then broadcast on the World’s first 3D 24 hour network, 3Net.
Today, we’re launching “Your Life in Sony 3D.” It’s a contest that will give someone the chance to have a special moment shot in Sony 3D to keep and share forever. The winner will have their chosen event captured and broadcast, and also will receive a copy of the show and a prize package of 3D products with which to watch and share that memory and create new ones over and over again.
Here’s how to enter: Go to the Sony Electronics page on Facebook and submit a personal photo and a description of the event you’d like to have filmed (500 character max). The contest is open until June 6th, 2011. Your 3D ideas should fall into one of four categories: Sports & Recreation, Arts & Entertainment, Cause & Community or Life’s Milestones & Events.
Five finalists will be chosen by the vote of fans of the Sony Electronics Facebook page. Producers at 3Net and Sony will choose another five. Then, Buzz Hayes, chief instructor at Sony’s 3D Technology Center in Los Angeles, and Scott Stewart, director of this week’s release of the 3D film “Priest”, will choose the winner.
Here’s a quick list of what the winning idea will win:
• A professionally-shot and edited 3D video to keep
• A hands-on tour of the 3D production truck used for the event
• A Sony 3D HDTV, 3D Blu-ray player, and 3D personal video cameras
• Broadcasting of your event on 3Net channel and at Sony stores nationwide
• Broadcasting of a 2D version on the Sony billboard in Times Square
Make sure to check out all the rules and regulations, then turn loose your imagination … in 3D!
