Stereoscopic 3D is crossing over from Hollywood into mainstream Television, Advertising, and even Education. This book is designed to inspire a new kind of “3D thinking” in Directors, Cinematographers and Film School Graduates, to encourage further exploration and integration of this medium into the process of visual storytelling.
Stereoscopic 3D should not only be about rigs and parallax any more than traditional filmmaking is about focal lengths and aspect ratios. Certainly there are techniques and considerations that have to be taken into account when making good Stereo 3D, but ultimately it is only how Stereoscopic 3D influences the audience’s experience of a film that is important.
This book is not a nuts and bolts, mirror rigs and depth budget handbook; instead it is a dialogue, a story and conversation designed to provoke new kinds of Stereo 3D thinking, as we delve into this fascinating new medium of visual communication.
The book will lead you through an exploration of the most important questions about S3D’s present, then inspire you to venture into the Why and What If? Hopefully that will lead to insights and inspire Directors, DPs and upcoming Stereographers, to unleash the true potential that S3D has as an integral, enriching part of the filmmaking process.
