‘BULLPROOF’ World Premiere on 3Net May 5
LOS ANGELES, May 5, 2011 /PRNewswire/ — Stereoscopic 3D production company, Wild Eyes Productions and Digital Revolution Studios are proud to present “BULLPROOF,” an all-new original 3D series, premiering May 5th on 3Net. “BULLPROOF” is the first episodic docu-reality series to be shot entirely in native 3D. In four one-hour installments, the season follows four American Bullfighters – the men once known as rodeo clowns — as they risk their lives to protect the cowboys of the Championship Bullriding (CBR) Tour.
“Our goal with this series was to marry immersive 3D cinematography with old-fashioned character-driven storytelling,” says Supervising Producer Aaron Bowden. “We’re confident that ‘BULLPROOF’ gives viewers what they expect from 2D shows in this genre. The 3D element elevates the viewer experience, bringing audiences closer to the action and to these incredibly compelling, hard-nosed characters.”
As the tour progresses, the bullfighters face more than 400 bulls, each bred specifically for their nasty temperament and many weighing up to 2000 pounds. The bullfighters endure broken bones, the ups-and-downs of life on the road and the ever-present possibility that someone could die in the ring.
“Though it’s set in the world of sports, you can’t think of this as a game,” according to Bowden. “For a bullfighter, it’s life or death. We’re not following who wins or loses. We’re following four men, who every weekend, perform one of the most dangerous jobs on earth.”
“BULLPROOF” airs all May on 3Net. International distribution rights are now available.
