The Rebirth of 3D Movies

39

3D movies are now making a comeback in mainstream cinemas. But what is a 3D Movie? It is actually a motion picture that boosts the illusion of depth perception. The technology that is being used in making 3D movies is derived from stereoscopic photography. A special motion picture camera is used to record the images as seen from two perspectives, and a special projection hardware and/or eyewear are used to provide the illusion of depth when watching a 3-dimensional motion picture.

It is a well-known fact that 3D movies have existed long before, but only in the start of 2010 that it was more developed into a more material product. 3D movies today are not given much significance within the movie industry predominantly because of the exceedingly expensive hardware, which is actually very necessary. Apart from the hardware, there are still certain processes that are essential in order to come up with one.

3D movies had a worldwide rebirth back in the 1980’s and 90’s when IMAX theaters ruled the high end cinema industry, and also some venues themed by Disney. At this time, they have progressively becoming more and more booming as time goes by, especially after the unmatched overall success of Avatar back in December of 2009.

Various entertainment-related businesses within the movie industry have now switched to 3D in most of their endeavors. The major rationale for this is that 3-dimensional movies are currently becoming one of the biggest income-generators in the whole world, particularly in Hollywood.

Different companies made their own rendering of three-dimensional movies so as to be part of the present excitement and hype that surrounds the greatest chartbuster of all time to date, Avatar. It earned as much as 2.4 billion dollars in worldwide ticket sales, numbers that make this particular movie by James Cameron the highest grossing movie to have ever been created.

A lot of people may possibly wonder why everyone else is going crazy when it comes to three-dimensional movies. However, if only everyone could actually watch a movie in 3-dimensional technology, then, they would absolutely be able to understand why everyone else has turned into 3D-crazy. Actually, ever since the smash hit Avatar was released, thirty-three percent of the income from box office movies came from 3D films. These statistical results are in accordance to the results done by the trade group, the International 3D Society.

What’s even more interesting about these numbers is that the thirty-three percent coverage only includes four 3-dimensional movies. Just picture what the figures could have been if all the three-dimensional movies were included in the study.

When people are trying out to find out why a lot of television manufacturers, cable companies, and movie creators have gone crazy with 3D, know that patrons will eagerly pay for more just to feel the 3D movie experience.
