3-D at NAB: The Digital Cinema Summit

I've spent the weekend at the Digital Cinema Summit at the NAB conference in Las Vegas. This year's summit was focused on all things 3-D, from cameras and acquisition, to digital 3-D theater statistics, to home 3-D broadcasting, to 2-D to 3-D conversion. Rob Engle, 3-D Visual Effects Supervisor at Sony Pictures Imageworks, invited me to speak on a panel about 3-D storytelling, and I was honored to share the stage with a distinguished group of 3-D experts - Rob; Bernard Mendiburu, author of the book 3-D Movie Making; 3-D Producer Phil Streather, and Chuck Comisky, whose many credits include Visual Effects Stereographer on Avatar.

The panel went very well, and I've received an overwhelming amount of positive feedback.

Details to follow soon....

Whatever Happened to Ro-Man?

Just a note to say that the 3-D movie "Whatever Happened to Ro-Man?" has now been posted to YouTube in HD.

This short 3-D video, written and directed by Ray Zone features a revealing interview with Ro-Man, star of the 1950s "Golden Turkey" 3D movie Robot Monster who was located recently living in North Hollywood, California (in a house that looks suspiciously like mine.)
