Bringing Depth of Field back to Stereoscopic 3D Storytelling

Selective Focus or… the Circle of Isolation in 3D (click for larger)

Depth OF Field: A stereoscopic 3D taboo?

Is Depth of Field (DoF) a no no in Stereoscopic 3D movie making? Pretty much yes. You would want to have infinite DoF in a 3D movie, so as not to cause undue duress to audiences eyes and minds as they struggle to “fuse” out-of-focus imagery. Yet, DoF and RackFocus are staple in the Cinematographers and Directors toolkit when making movies, and have been for the past few generations.

Frankenweenie review: The mechanics of Stop motion in Stereoscopic 3D

(image credit: Disney)

Stop Motion Cinematography and Stereoscopic 3D:

I was asked by a student film-maker at my recent 3D production master-class during the AbuDhabi Film Festival, what I thought about Stop motion in 3D and Frankenweenie.
