(from a Harry Knowles interview with director James Cameron)
“With that we began talking about 3D. The camera he is going to be shooting with is called THE FUSION CAMERA, which is scheduled to shoot a U2 Concert in the next couple of days. I love that he knows where his camera is going. Anyway. Jimâ€™s planning on shooting 3D not so much as the stab you in the eye, throw a flaming spear at you type of thing, but as, what he calls, â€œA More Lucid Window,â€ through which to observe the worlds that heâ€™s going to unleash upon us.
When I began talking about the questionable Home Entertainment application in terms of immediate revenue return, like the 2D market todayâ€¦ especially with this film being seen widely in the superior stereoscopic format. Cameron said that all the at-home viewing technology is developed and is sitting waiting for content. Before the technology giants like SONY come out with the perfect 3D at home screening units â€“ they need to have at least 30-40 major popular titles to package to offer in an initial offering to the public. Thatâ€™s where the retro-fitting of 2D films to Stereo Optics is coming in. 3D STAR WARS, INDIANA JONES, etc. I asked him which of his films would get that treatment and at this time heâ€™s really concentrating on T2 and TITANIC.”
When’s E3 again..?
(oh…and whilst my tangental thrust is of the interactive variety, scope THIS out. Finally…a chance at sweet, SWEET redemption after the sea of scrotum sweat and phallic feta-froth poor Supes endured last time.)
