3D Screening – Canada 1812: Forged in Fire

High Fidelity HDTV Media Inc. premiered the first episode of the 3D version of their new series Canada 1812: Forged in Fire at Fort George National Historic Site during celebrations of the 200th anniversary of the declaration of the War of 1812.

The war between the United States and Britain helped shape the destiny of both Canada and the United States. The series focuses on six characters from the war, Isaac Brock, Charles de Salaberry, Laura Secord, Tecumseh,  John Norton and Enos Collins. The series will air on eqhd in Canada and was produced in partnership with Parks Canada.

The series is part of a multi-media project which includes a web site, four character based promos featuring National historic sites, and a companion graphic novel. The web site allows viewers to get more background about the characters and events. The graphic novel will tell the stories in another medium to a younger audience. The art from the graphic novel is used in the series in place of live action re-enactments. Actors were used only to portray the main characters in the story. The only other people seen on screen are historians who give context to the story. The graphic novel will be downloadable and will have icons which will allow readers to click through to access more information about the story. The enhanced graphic novel was made possible by a grant from the Bell Fund.

Shooting took place between October 2011 and June 2012 in many of the War of 1812 battle locations.  The series was shot on 3ality Technica Pulsar 3D rig with Sony P1 cameras and matching 3D Fujinon zoom lenses.  The shoulder mount one piece Sony 3D Camera assisted the production with additional B-roll coverage and a Quadrocopter with a Sony 3D NXCAM Compact Camcorder provided the unique aerials. The 3D conform was done on a Quantel Pablo colour correction and finishing system with a Neo control panel. All 3D elements were handled by DJ Woods Productions.

“Our goal is to tell personal stories which both celebrate Canadian heroes and make the stories relatable to the audience,” said Craig Colby, Director of Production for High Fidelity HDTV Median Inc. “3D is the perfect medium to make a story more immersive and more emotional. It was obvious from the reaction to our 3D screening that we achieved both goals.”

The first two episodes of the series also debuted on eqhd on June18, 2012 at 10:00 p.m. The next two episodes will be aired on July 15, the 200th anniversary of the capture of Fort Mackinac, with the final two premiering on August 13 the 200th anniversary of the surrender of Fort Detroit.
