"There's something that 3D gives to the picture that takes you into another land and you stay there and it's a good place to be... It's like seeing a moving sculpture of the actor, and it's almost like a combination of theater and film and it immerses you in the story more. I saw audiences care about the people more." - Martin Scorcese
Live Stereoscopic 3D adds immersion to every frame, that to create real lifelike images that the audiences can connect to. Emotions, drama, action, fear as they are all heightened due to immersive nature of 3D as well as the surprise/shock value that 3D films offer. We see 3D in real life and using Stereoscopic 3D, the audience can perceive the world being shot as real, and the theatre screen becomes a window into reality, so the characters become more real, surroundings become more real, making the audience experience the film as reality.
- It’s the way we see
- Immersive experience
- Creative Impact
- Adds another dimension
- Enhances storytelling / experience
- 3D should be about making you laugh more, cry more, empathise with your characters more – and that’s what good 3D film making is about.
Why shoot 3D natively and not convert 2D to 3D
- Shooting S3D natively will yield much better results as you can see it right there and design your shots to look great in 3D.
- Allows Director, Cinematographer and Stereographer to collectively make intelligent choices to make the best use of 3D as an element of storytelling.
- Such films like Hugo, Pina, Avatar, The Great Gatsby, etc. have used 3D to build a connection between the characters of the film and the audience.
- Intelligent S3D systems like TS5 allow a film to be shot at the same pace as a 2D film.
- It's cheaper to shoot a natively 3D film than to post convert a film from 2D to 3D.
- Live 3D pulling would give better roundness & sense of depth than that in 2D to 3D converted footage.
- Titanic 3D has tried to match the 2D to 3D conversion with natively S3D footage by spending $18 million on 2D to 3D conversion alone.
- Natural layers vs artificial layering and rotoscopy
- Shooting live is collectively the process of making intelligent choices in 3D as you see it and design your shots accordingly.
