3DD has signed a co-production deal with ITN Source, the world’s leading provider of broadcast footage to create a series that celebrates the history and glamour of the Cannes Film Festival. This three part series will also be a co-production with Cinémoi, the brand new French Cinema channel (www.cinemoi.tv). The series will look at the many highlights of Cannes from the early years of Errol Flynn and Grace Kelly and the Nouvelle Vague era of Truffaut and Godard right through to the biggest stars of today.
The series will be launching at Cannes itself in May 2009 and will be going out on Cinémoi during the festival. 3DD productions has also begun producing several other programmes that will be made thanks to the new relationship with ITN Source including another three part series on the history of French cinema and the work of Brigitte Bardot, Francois Truffaut and Jean-Luc Godard.
3DD Productions has just finished recording three London Live specials with the three hottest female artists around: Lily Allen, Lady Gaga and Kelly Clarkson.
“We're very pleased to be working with ITN on this co-production. The relationship allows us to create both short form daily episodes across all media as well as series for TV” said Nazli Alizadeh, Head of Marketing at 3DD.
Dan Mills, Business Development Manager for Entertainment at ITN Source, added:
“ITN Source is delighted to be working with 3DD Productions on the Cinémoi venture which will see our content enhance their original productions. Through news stories and interviews with film’s biggest stars, plucked from our one million hours of archive, viewers will get a real sense of the history of the Cannes Film Festival as well as a chance to see rarely seen footage.”
