So can anyone from NAB tell us if they used a silver screen today? I saw an image of the Oakley glasses so I assume this is polarized 3D but want to make sure
I have always looked at 3d as a gimmick. For me, it never made my movie going experience any better, which is the point. I thought I was gonna die after I saw Avatar in the theater because a I had such a massive headache. So this morning at NAB I watched the short film LOOM that red was showcasing......I no longer think 3D is a gimmick and it most definite has a place in this industry. From the first frame of the film, I could tell there was something different going on, something better. My eyes did not struggle to adjust to the difference in depth on each shot. For the first time in my life I TRULY enjoyed a 3D movie experience and it pumps me up! The images were like butter and its going to look even better on Thursday!
This is the best time of the year. For those of us that not only have gear lust, but are also writer/producer/directors, April is a time that sparks imagination and gets the creative juices flowing. (Or flowing at a greater rate if you're already "there.") :)
Are you guys taking reservations for the projector at the booth? I was there today, I want one!
By the way, being the cynical that I am, I stopped at the Barco booth, and asked the guy what he thought of the product.
He said... "are they announcing what?... that it will cost what?... that it will do what?.... IMPOSSIBLE!"
Let's not even get down to the fact that the equivalent product from Barco is the size of a refrigerator, so even if we were to buy it, we would have to tear down half the building for it... which clearly won't happen.
Always good to hear the opinion from other "experts" I suppose
