MK2 ‘Crazy’ for 3D sales

Shingle has digitized its circuit of 60 screen

Gaul’s MK2 is entering the international 3D sales biz.

The shingle, a French digital cinema pioneer, has digitized its circuit of 60 screens, and has been very successful programming opera and sports events in its theaters, said MK2 prexy Nathanael Karmitz.

Now it’s looking to sell at least one high-profile 3D entertainment-based feature a year for foreign theatrical and TV, according to Karmitz.

The first 3D project on its sales slate is “Crazy Horse Paris — Feu by Christian Louboutin in 3D,” an omnibus of 12 live acts at Paris’ iconic club designed by Louboutin and directed by France’s Bruno Hullin, whose credits include the 2010 World Cup sportscasts.

The 80-minute “Crazy Horse” also features interviews with Louboutin and performers. David Lynch composed a musical piece for the show, as did Natacha Atlas.

MK2’s core business is, and will remain, its production of four features a year, Karmitz said.

Three MK2 productions play Cannes official selection: Walter Salles’ “On the Road,” Abbas Kiarostami’s “Like Someone in Love,” both in competition, and Xavier Dolan’s “Laurence Anyways,” in Un Certain Regard.
