DAM999 Unveils ‘World’s First 3D Movie Website’

Today, (April 19th 2011), Sohan Roy unveils what he describes “the world’s first 3D movie website” for his forthcoming film, 'DAM999', the movie that was shot partly in Fujairah, UAE.

According to the Press Release:

“This…will make the audience realize that they themselves are now a part of the movie on screen. This initiative is expected to be a trend setter for all upcoming 3D movies which prefer 3D websites rather than traditional flash ones. All the images in the gallery have been made stereoscopic to share the feel of the actual movie….The 3D website has been created by the in house software team of BizTV network.”

Evolution of the DAM Project

Director Sohan Roy began the project DAM999 in 2007. The movie is about the overlooked dangers of outdated dams; the realities of the marine world; tradition, culture, forgotten medical cures of India, the pain and pleasures of being in love and the many hidden emotions of humankind.

Sohan Roy began writing the novel ‘DAM 999’ in 2008.

He went on to the production of ‘DAM999 – The First International movie from the mariners’ and the documentary ‘DAMs the Lethal Water bombs’, inspired from his own novel DAM999.

DAM Awards

DAM999 was mentioned as one of the 30 most awaited movies this year by the Berlin film festival trade publication, “All lights Film Magazine”.

The short documentary ‘DAMs the Lethal Water bombs’ released as a curtain riser to DAM999 won the Award for ‘Best Documentary Short’ at Los Angeles Cinema Festival of Hollywood 2011.

16 National and International award winners from 9 different film industries including Hollywood and Bollywood have been roped up for DAM999 to create magic on screen.
