3D Shot 11 3D Shot 5

3D is booming – and not just in cinemas. 3D is apparently on its way to a living room near you! Practically every TV manufacturer already offers 3D televisions, even though there are not many films or broadcasts available in 3D, So what does this muchcoveted “WOW” effect bring us? This easily comprehensible science documentary illustrates from various perspectives the opportunities offered by this new technology as well as the associated challenges. Neurologists, opticians, engineers, graphic designers and actors give us interesting insider knowledge. Why do 3D images give some people headaches and why does the brain have to work so hard to process them? Camera technicians are attempting to resolve this problem.
