Edd, 4 yrs old, loves space. He’s particularly fascinated with the Moon, Mars and astronauts Aldrin and Armstrong. His other interest in science is paleontology. Using an android slate, the game engine Unity and Qualcomm’s Augmented Reality plugin, Vuforia, it was easy to ‘resurrect’ Dinosaurs. Edd watched in fascination, using the slate as a director’s viewfinder as he tracked an animated Triceratops walk around his room.

Hugo the movie, is a case study in how stereoscopic 3D can and should be used as a new medium of visual storytelling. I finally got a chance to see the movie, here in Dubai a few weeks later than its release date.

3D Movie Supervisory Services from Real Vision:
With more media being produced in Stereoscopic 3D today, than ever before, there is a big demand for Stereoscopic Quality Control for these productions. Everything from 30 second AD films, to animation and Feature Films are now in Stereoscopic 3D.
But as we know, producing good S3D content is not a matter of owning the latest fail safe 3D rig, or having 3D signal analysis gear on-location. While technology is a major player in the “creative” process of 3D film making, years of experience in the medium allows us at Real Vision, to quickly flag S3D errors on-location and in post.
