4K SUPER 8 IN 3D

Recommended Posts

Hello everybody,

I’d like to share with you the first 4K SUPER 8 FILM IN 3D. It’s one of my 5 submissions to the KODAK SUPER 8 FILMMAKING CHALLENGE. Click on the link below to go to the Audience Awards website to watch the film.

FAIR WARNING: You MUST use anaglyph (Red / Cyan) 3D glasses to experience the 3D effect, otherwise the image looks just blurred. Headphones are also recommended.

Don’t forget to vote please.

Thank you,

MOY

As a film "in 3D" this work is very very disappointing. For it is only the titles and the frame line that are in 3D, and such was done by digital means rather than anything in the field on Super8. The Super8 image itself is completely flat. In other words the film itself hasn't been shot using two cameras. In what way can one call it a 3D film?

 

Nevertheless the photography itself is really really interesting. It would be just so much better without the anaglyph rendering.

Carl,

Thank you very much for your comments. This is the reason why some of us show what we do without worrying about being criticized. All criticism is welcome. It only inspires me to work harder and harder, and to continue developing ideas for our beloved film format, and to test old and new technologies, either in existence and/or in development.

More surprises to come, stay tuned.

Hi Moises -

 

so did you shoot the film with this rig? Have I got it wrong? When I look at the image I can't see any depth in at all - just the titles floating above the image, and the image set back into the screen plane. In any case I really love the scenes you've got there.

I'd love to see this in a side-by-side or top-bottom 3d format! I've got a GearVR, so I'd love to check it out with true 3D playback instead of Red/Blue. Plus I could watch it in 3D in a giant virtual theater!!

How did you align the frames of the cameras? Backlight projection or such?

How does one keep the focal-length equal while on location?

And are the cameras running in sync or is there no need for that?

Hi Andries,

 

The reason I didn’t disclose any technical information is simple. Stereoscopic 3D cinema is very complex to produce.

Nevertheless, I tell you that I was very lucky to participate in the first, and only one, 3D workshop ever offered by two very important universities, Universidad Nacional Autónoma de México, UNAM and La Universidad de Chile.

In the summer of 2014 I traveled to Mexico City to be part of such an incredible experience. I met the rest of the group at the UNAM’s facilities. This 3D class was a very intensive workshop that lasted for two weeks. An hybrid class with classroom-style lectures and heavy hands-on activities. We spend up to 12 hours every day for this class, some days even more, specially when we produced the final project.

We had four full-time professors for the entire length of workshop, to teach us the secrets of 3D cinema. And although we had two professors from México and one from Chile, the class was mainly taught in English because or French professor did’t speak Spanish.

In addition to our professors, we also had 3D experts from a company called City 3D. This company provided all the necessary 3D rig that included two sophisticated Alexa cameras for the final project. These cameras were dressed with the best and lates attachments to control wireless focus, aperture and the like. The rest of the equipment, lighting and gripping, was provided by two of the best film schools in Latin America, UNAM and El Centro de Capacitacíon Cinematográfica, CCC.

We studied the advantages and disadvantages of all the different techniques used to create 3D films. That included side by side, mirror, and virtual techniques. All of these are very complex topics that it’s hard to explain in a few words.

Cameras alignment, focal-length, and cameras synchronization are, in fact, very important factors to produce 3D. Not to mention, aperture, color rendition and film stock. Those were my major concerns I addressed to all my four professors when I explained I wanted to experiment with Super 8 3D filmmaking. Fortunately, I was directed to the right direction.

The link below shows you those of us who were lucky to participate in such an amazing experience. You will also find pictures of the rigging we were using. There’s a bigger photograph at bottom of the page. I’m in the back, wearing an orange cap. Two of my professors are holding the slate while the other, with grey hair, smiles at the camera. My fourth professor is the one who took the quick snapshot.

Let’s keep pushing Super 8 to places never even dreamed before.

Cheers,

MOY
