Duo team on HD 3D concerts
AEG Live, Action 3D to release films theatrically
by Steve Chagollan
AEG Live and Action 3D have partnered to produce a series of filmed concert events shot on HD 3D and slated to be released theatrically in 3D for limited, one-week engagements. The first film to roll out will headline the Dave Matthews Band, culled from footage shot at the three-day Austin City Limits festival in October, scheduled to be released Dec. 11 by Cinedigm Entertainment on 300-400 digital cinema screens in the U.S.
Pic includes other acts and is titled
"Larger Than Life…in 3D Featuring the Dave Matthews Band, Ben Harper and Relentless7 and Gogol Bordello."
Since partnering in the spring, AEG and Action 3D have already compiled footage from 56 artists from five different festivals, with the goal of upping that figure to 150 artists in 2010. The strategy has been to pinpoint fests like Lollapalooza, All Points West and Austin City Limits, allowing the filmmakers to film multiple artists over the course of one event.
