Future of 3D Movies

The Future of 3D Movies

When you talk of the future, you must refer it to the past and the present. Just like in walking, the normal thing to do is to move forward and not backward. When you walk forward, you should start from something. When we talk about the future of 3D movies we should start from where it is right now.

But before we do that, lets talk about what a 3D movie is.  A three-dimensional movie is a motion picture that magnifies the illusion of depth understanding. In making these movies, a special motion picture camera systems is used to record images as they are seen from two views and a special eye-wear are used to provide the illusion of depth when viewing the movie.

3d_tvActually 3D movies have been in existence since 1950s but did not become popular because of the expensive gadget and processes needed to produce and show a 3D movie. Another factor was the lack of standardization of format for the different sections of the entertainment industry.

However, during the 1980s and 1990s the 3D movies were resurrected through the IMAX high-end theaters and Disney themed-venues. 3D movies are becoming to be more and more popular from year 2000 until today, especially with the 3D presentation of Avatar in December of 2009 until January of this year. More movies are either being produced or converted using 3D technology.  In 2003

The Ghost of the Abyss was made into a full-length 3-D movie using the latest HD video cameras and the same camera system was also used to produce Spy Kids 3D: Game Over, Aliens of the Deep IMAX and the Adventures of Shark Boy and Lava Girl in 3D.3d-movies

There was a suggestion that both filmmakers and film exhibitors get back to 3D film. One positive aspect of shooting in 3D format is that it is less limited and the results are more stable. Another good prospect is the fact that while 2D ticket sales are declining, income from 3D ticket sales are continuously growing. The techniques to convert existing 2D images to 3D presentation are now available.  Sometime in year 2005 Steven Spielberg announced his patenting of a 3D cinema system that does not need glasses which is based on plasma screens.

Now we know where the three dimensional movies came from and where it is now. With the many developments and improvements in the technology in the making of 3D movies, we can see clearly that the future  is bright as the stars.  It is here to stay and more 3D movies are coming for our enjoyment.

Upcoming 3D Movies:

Saw 3d, Jackass 3D, The Chronicles of Narnia: The Voyage of the Dawn Treader, Gulliver’s Travels 3D, Yogi Bear 3D, Drive Angry 3D, Rio, Pirates of the Caribbean: on Stranger Tides
