3D Brings Scorsese Back to the Origins of Moviemaking

“Happy endings only happen in the movies,” says the melancholy shopkeeper Georges (Ben Kingsley) in Martin Scorsese’s blockbuster film Hugo. This visually stunning 3D adventure honors Georges Méliès, the pioneer filmmaker behind the 1902 fantasy film A Trip to the Moon. Nominated for a total of 11 Academy Awards, Hugo won big by taking home Oscar gold in five categories: Best Cinematography, Best Art Direction, Best Sound Mixing, Best Sound Editing and Best Visual Effects.

pro_liveeventproduction_photo1_openingphotoAfter nearly two years of seeing sports televised live in 3D in the U.S., it’s easy to lose sight of the fact that it’s only been five years since the 2007 NBA All-Star Game in Las Vegas, which was the very first live 3D sports event. It was also the first sports event that was multi-cast in 2D as well as 3D. “We fed the left-eye signal to an auditorium in the Mandalay Bay Hotel where it was shown to a small audience via twin 4K projectors,” recalls Steve Hellmuth, the NBA broadcast operations and technology EVP who spearheaded this and other early NBA 3D efforts. “The quality of the uncompressed 3D signal was amazing.” NBA has long been broadcasting events in 3D, and ESPN 3D featured 17 live NBA games during the 2010–11 season. ESPN 3D now beams a diverse menu of 3D sports, ranging from boxing and basketball to the Winter X Games, into thousands of homes via DIRECTV.
