Phantom Flex And Slow Motion 3D

On 6 October in Aubervilliers, France, Binocle participated to an innovative 3D workshop based on shooting high-speed stereoscopic footage on the Vision Research Phantom Flex camera. The Vision Research Phantom Flex is one of the best choices for very high frame rates, up to 10,700 fps (at low resolution) or a lower but nevertheless quite respectable 1,000 fps in Full HD.

Injured on a 3D Shooting Stage

Shooting a 3D movie is not without danger, blood, sweat, and tears !

Injuries Emergency workers at the scene said their jobs were made more difficult by the fact that the injured were dressed like zombies, which made it hard to determine which injuries were real.: the collapse of a platform during a shoot for the "Resident Evil: Retribution" zombie movie in west Toronto has injured 17 people., 11 of them were taken to hospital after falling from a platform while they were working on a scene from the film Resident Evil: Retribution at the Cinespace Film Studios at 777 Kipling Ave. north of the Queensway. It looks like somebody moved one of the rolling platforms without warning and part of the crew fell through the gap between both platforms.

Vicky and the Treasure of the Gods

Vicky and the Treasure of the Gods was released end of September in Germany in stereoscopic 3D (original German title : Wickie auf großer Fahrt).

The stereographer in charge was Florian Maier from Stereotec, a guy who nows when and why 3D work: in shots where a 2D director would use multiple angles and many cuts, Maier choreographed a single fluid crane movement that took in wide, medium, close up, and reverse shots in what he describes as 'a more normal way of looking at the scene'.

Big cranes and ultralight 3D rigs required....

Do You Think Some Studies Are Biased?

Panasonic reports that a new study says that most consumers believe that 3D TV provides a far more satisfying viewing experience than regular (2D) TV. The study was conducted at the Disney’s D23 Expo and covered more than 500 attendees. The study reports that 99% said 3D is better than 2D and 71% said 3D was "dramatically better" than 2D.

Note : The survey was carried out by independent market research firm Frank N. Magid Associates (on behalf of Panasonic).
