James Cameron and Michael Bay talk about the future of 3D
James Cameron and Michael Bay have spoken out about the future of 3D at a special event in Hollywood.
The pair hosted ‘3D: A Transforming Visual Art’ at the Paramount Theater, where they spoke about the future of multi-dimensional film-making (as well as presenting some clips from Bay’s Transformers: Dark of the Moon).
Here’s what they had to say:
“I first met James Cameron on the set of Titanic, and he invited me on the set of Avatar. At first I thought 3D was harder than you could imagine, and really not me. Really not me. I’m old school, I like 35mm film where you can touch it, you can feel it. 3D is just all ones and zeros. When I got on set James said he wanted to show me some cool algorithms, and I was like ‘What?’”
“James explained it to me like 3D is just a new toy to play with.”
“All films benefit from 3D to varying degrees, but I thought Michael had to do 3D. The marriage of his very technical filmmaking and 3D was something I wanted to see.”
