New! Report of 1st 2004 Movie Meeting!

We had a fabulous turnout for a truly enjoyable meeting. There was a real feeling of excitement with some very interesting displays and demos dealing with 3-D movies and videos. It has been several years since the SCSC 3-D Movie/Video division has had a presentation at the regular club meeting. Dr. John E. Hart had the brainstorm to present a twenty-year review of what the 3-D Movie/Video division had been doing. He recruited a large group of volunteers to bring us a very diverse and entertaining evening of 3-D entertainment. Thank you to everyone who participated! I want to also thank the SCSC Board for approving the necessary expense to convert the film-based 3-D projects to a digital format so we could have such a complete and seamless presentation.

If you didn’t make this landmark meeting you missed some of the best clips and complete short 3D movies/videos from the past three SCSC 3D/Stereo Movie/Video Bolex.jpg (57893 bytes)Exhibitions/Competitions and other great projects from the past two decades. Plus included was some insight (and clips) into some of the 3-D movie projects that have been completed over the years. It is about time for another SCSC 3-D Movie or Video project. Does anyone have a script or concept for a short 3-D movie?

Just one year ago it appeared that the movie division was going to disband, but there is a new group of excited enthusiasts. The next meeting of the 3-D Movie/Video division is being planned for November. If you are interested in joining contact John Hart at: movies3d@aol.com. The movies meetings are always a lot of fun with great 3-D discussions, camaraderie and even some 3-D movie/videos being screened.
