It was a real honor to award the 15 000 dollar prize in post production in the name of MELS last week at the Gala du Court Métrage Québécois PRENDS ÇA COURT. This was the the main award of the night, the Grand Prix Final. Our colleagues Raphael Rainville and Marie-Christine Jean gave the award to Jerémy Compte for his short film FAUVE.
We also want to thank Paul Bellerose, Philippe Pelletier and Denis Rozon for their presence throughout the event who took place at the Cinémathèque Québecoise.
Seen by over 2.8 million people on Facebook and shared more than 14,000 times, MELS is proud to have collaborated on Fifty Shades Darker VR - a teaser version in virtual reality of the popular Fifty Shades Darker movie. MELS's VR team not only worked on its visual effects, post-production and 3D animation, but they also produced it in stereoscopy such as a 3D movie playing at a cinema which allows for the VR experience through Oculus Rift to be a lot more technically and visually impressive. We would like to thank our friends at 5th Wall Agency and UNIVERSAL Pictures for this amazing opportunity. Currently, MELS is working on a new VR project which promises to be exceedingly gripping as well as leave its mark on the fantasy world.
