Competition to star in 3D movie – Project Borneo 3D

7 02 2011

The search is on for 10 people to star in a new 3D movie and at the same time help save the planet!

Virgo Productions an award-winning, boutique screen industries company has just launched their competition that is open to people aged between 18-35 years old. They are searching the globe to find 10 project managers who will be the eyes, voice and ears of the project.

Project Borneo 3D is a project led by Microsoft and TakingITGlobal, the largest not-for-profit social network in the world. The project is also working with Dr. Willie Smitts and Orangutan Outreach.

Millions of young people will join forces to tackle the biggest challenge facing our planet – stopping deforestation. The ten chosen applicants will travel to Borneo and live in a Dayak long house for five months and take action to save the forest and the orangutans. They will connect online with millions of young people across the globe. And they will be the subjects of a 3D movie.

The movie is being developed by Virgo Products who specialise in feature documentaries that tell inspiring, positive, global stories with cross-platform delivery to engage audiences world-wide through cinema, television, online, mobile and DVD release.
Burning Season is one of their famous films : an eco-thriller – about a young Australian entrepreneur, who believes there’s money to be made from protecting rainforests in Indonesia, saving the orangutan from extinction and making a real impact on climate change.

This is an amazing project. I believe in the power of media and movies to wake up people and raise awareness about destruction we cause to our planet. I’m sure this project will make a great contribution.
I am one of the candidates. You can view my videos here: http://gg.tigweb.org/tig/deforestaction/48725/

I can’t wait to see the final result and its impact. If I am chosen, it will be a pleasure and a privilege to be the voice, eyes and ears of this project.

3D Movies are the best since they add more depth and dramatic effect to the movie. ^
