Event Website

Join the S3D Centre at Emily Carr in partnership with Grand NCE, Annex Pro and Patrick Lussier for the sixth Stereoscopic 3D Meetup: “S3D for Theatrical Film”.

There is discussion among industry professionals about whether it is more fitting to describe the format of Stereoscopic 3D as a tool, or a medium. Theatrical directors also debate the advantages and disadvantages of using subtle or aggressive 3D when creating a depth script for a film. Director Patrick Lussier is known for using 3D like a roller coaster ride where the audience can experience its full range of potential, and he explores the 3D formats’ immersive and fun qualities. Lussier’s presentation will feature clips from two of his films, MY BLOODY VALENTINE 3D (2009) and DRIVE ANGRY (2011) and he will describe the pre, production and post process of directing these films, challenges shooting on location and technical advancements that occurred between films.
