You don’t have to have red/blue (anaglyph) glasses on while watching this, but it helps. This little short was shot with a custom-built 3D beamsplitter rig by Portland, OR-based filmmaker Jesse Blanchard.

Blanchard has been working on and refining the rig for a while, as documented on his buddy Brian Belefant’s blog. He also built a sweet DIY 3d theater set up that uses a silver screen and polarized RealD glasses.

UPDATE: I’m hoping to interview Blanchard about his rig and his plans for a feature-length film: Chompers 3D. Stay tuned!
