3DigitalVision has begun filming the premiere episode for a ground-breaking stereoscopic 3D HD documentary series in General Motors’ Hamtramck assembly plant. The one-hour stereoscopic film will detail the design, testing, and assembly process of the world’s first Extended Range Electric Vehicle—the Chevrolet Volt.
Captured in full 1080p 3D, the film explores the unique challenges to engineering and building the Volt’s revolutionary propulsion system and aerodynamic body. From early designs to prototypes to extreme climate testing, the documentary brings the Volt’s full story to life with new details. 3DigitalVision’s crew was granted rare access to GM’s Global Design Studios, Global Battery Systems Laboratory, as well as the legendary Milford proving grounds where vehicles are tested under punishing conditions. “We’re thrilled with the generous access GM has given us to the assembly plant and sensitive R&D facilities,” said series Producer/Director Michael Watchulonis. “The Volt is an impressive leap in technology, and there’s much more to its story than most people have seen.”
In addition to the Chevrolet Volt, the Super Machines 3D series will also profile cutting- edge aircraft, weapons systems, construction equipment, and robotics. “We’re taking viewers onto the factory floor, behind the closed doors of secretive design studios, and onto restricted testing grounds to see how these incredible machines are conceived and built,” added Watchulonis. “Seeing this amazing technology come together in vibrant 3D is impressive. But we’re also digging into the challenges and brilliant solutions needed to take a super machine from concept to finely-tuned product.”
