This workshop will show production companies and filmmakers how to become 3D ready.
The day will start by teaching the science, history, art and business of S3D. Why has the acronym 3D been changed to S3D? And how has digital capture technology become the big game changer for S3D content creators? In addition, we will describe the new production and post-production workflow.
Emily Carr's Sean Arden and Filmmaker David Tenniswood will discuss how S3D is a different way of conceiving and visualizing your story. Followed by looking at some the 3D previsualization tools available for pre-production, production and post-production.
The cost and expense and budgeting of S3D will be discussed as well as the language of S3D. Attendees will be given list of terms that they can refer to when working in the medium.
Gener8 is a successful company that has developed a positive reputation in a challenging industry. The conventional wisdom in the film industry and popular press seems to be that the only way to produce a quality stereoscopic 3D film is to shoot with native stereo camera rigs. Stereoscopic 3D post-conversion is generally looked upon as a lower-quality alternative. We suggest that 3D conversion can produce high quality results; in fact a more useful conversation is "what is the right tool for the job?"
