The S3D Centre at Emily Carr in partnership with freelance camera operator and stereographer Dylan Reade presents the third in a series of Meetups for the Vancouver film and television community: “IMAX: The Evolution of Large Format 3D”.

Special guest Dylan Reade will present a historical overview of the evolution of large format 3D over a twenty five year period, including an explanation of the technological breakthroughs that allowed IMAX to move beyond the technology of beamsplitters and into far simpler and more portable systems than those in current theatrical use. His presentation of the technology will include personal stories and photographs and an acknowledgment of some of the key players that kept 3D thriving prior to its current mainstream renaissance, including several from the Vancouver film industry. He will also discuss differences in the IMAX philosophical approach to 3D and an appraisal of how it has relevance for the broader theatrical industry.
