3-D Mania: Encounter in the Third Dimension
Description: nWave Pictures' giant screen production "Encounter in the Third Dimension" is a groundbreaking venture into the realm of 3-D filmmaking. Using CGI technology to its maximum potential, 3-D sight gags abound in this thrilling presentation that integrates computer generated imagery and live action to explore the history of 3-D photography and 3-D motion pictures. Audiences will encounter early incarnations of the third dimension, from a recreation of one of the earliest 3-D movies ever made to classic clips from Hollywood's 3-D heyday during the 1950s. With the latest filmmaking technology, nWave takes moviegoers on the wildest 3-D adventure ever created for the giant screen. Directed by Ben Stassen and produced by Charlotte Huggins, "Encounter in the Third Dimension" immerses the audience in the 3-D film experience. Moviegoers begin their encounter in the digitally- created Institute of 3-D Technology. The Institute's bright but slightly disorganized professor (played by Stuart Pankin) offers the audience a crash course in 3-D technology. Not content with dry scientific explanations, the Professor presents Elvira, an entertainer best known as the "Mistress of the Dark," to show off his latest innovation, a new 3-D process called "Real-O-Vision." When his demonstration goes awry, the Professor enlists the services of his wisecracking assistant, a flying robot named Max, to entertain and educate the audience about the wonders of 3-D. To explain the history of 3-D technology, Max takes the audience on a magical journey through time, from early cave drawings and hieroglyphics to the discovery of perspective by Renaissance artists of the sixteenth century.
