Adventures in Volumetric Cinema

Thursday, 7 March 2019

1:00 PM EST / 10:00 AM PST / 18:00 UTC/GMT

A colleague and I had access to volumetric 3D displays and decided to try to make a motion picture to be exhibited in a public setting on such a device. We hosted a month-long workshop with students from several universities to try out storytelling and visual ideas and to experiment with production and post-production processes. In this talk I’ll describe what we’ve learned so far, as we head into the final production phase later this year.
