The Most 3D Popular 3D Channel Strikes Again
The most popular 3D channel on YouTube is managed by Tom Gifford. Eight of those video have been watched more than one million times and the cumulative views counter is over 40 Million.
If case you didn't noticed, Tom is an adept of extreme parallax. His videos are full of in-your-face moments with parallax as high as 30% of screen width. His last success "3D Super Extreme" combines CGI elements on a static live background and is available in 4K 3D on YouTube. Some of the objects are thrown through the screen, pushing the parallax over 100%.
Tom breaks many of the 3D rules (see the 1O Commandments of Stereoscopy) but for short periods, our brain is able to afford the monstrous parallax values and appreciate 3D for the sake of 3D. It even likes it so much it asks for more several times in a row ...

"Northern Lights over Mount Halde", an 8-minutes 3D short
"Northern Lights over Mount Halde" is a short stereoscopic 3Dfilm by Morten Skallerud on auroral researchers with families on an isolated mountaintop in Finnmark, 1917. The 8-minutes long film is told in large part using silhouettes against the night sky and Northern Lights.

"ORA", the First 3D Movie Shot with Thermal Cameras
Join the S3D Centre at Emily Carr (Vancouver, Canada), in conjunction with Simon Fraser University, for an evening with celebrated filmmaker Philippe Baylaucq. The evening will include the premiere Vancouver screening of his experimental 15-minutes Stereoscopic 3D short film ORA.
ORA is dance transformed by cinema—a completely unique film experience that merges the artistic worlds of Baylaucq and choreographer José Navas. The first film to use 3D thermal imaging, its visuals are unlike anything ever seen: the luminous variations of body heat seen on skin, bodies emitting a multitude of colours, a space filled with movement that transforms itself.
