After directing his first-ever 3D movie The Adventures of Tintin (above), Steven Spielberg's got a lot to say about working in three dimensions.
Here's Steven on his thoughts about 3D:
"People who just do 3D just for the sake of commercialising their movie another five or six per cent and they don't know really how to do it, they should care how to do it better by bringing other directors and collaborators into their lives to help teach and instruct how you really make a 3D movie because it's not just like putting a new lens on a camera and forgetting it."
"It takes a lot of very careful consideration. It will change your approach to where you put the cameras. So, 3D isn't for everybody."
"I'm certainly hoping that 3D gets to the point where people do not notice it because once they stop noticing it, it just becomes another tool and an aid to help tell a story. Then maybe they can make the ticket prices comparable to a 2D movie and not charge such exorbitant prices just to gain entry into a 3D one."
Well said, Steven! We'll look forward to seeing how you utilize 3D for Tintin.
Oh, and can you PLEASE grace us with a few 3D spitting dinosaurs when you make Jurassic Park IV? THAT would be a fantastic usage of 3D…not to mention a terrifying one! Ha!
What do U think about Steven Spielberg's comments about 3D? Do U agree with him?
