Keynote Presentation   4:40 to 5:40 pm
Digital Technology and the Resurgence of Commercial Stereoscopic Entertainment

Steve Schklair, Cobalt Entertainment

ABSTRACT:
Not since the 1970's has there been so much activity in stereoscopic cinema in the commercial and corporate film sector. Advances in digital technologies enabling both efficient capture and exhibition have eliminated most of the obstacles faced by previous generations of 3D entertainment. At the front end are new high resolution digital cameras on "intelligent" motion controlled shooting platforms. In the middle are new digital post-production tools. At the back end is the coming roll-out of commercial digital cinemas accompanied by recent developments in stereoscopic projection technologies. Taken together, these tools and techniques are behind the new wave of stereoscopic filmmaking that is changing the paradigm of the mainstream Hollywood movie business.

Steve Schklair is the founder and principal of Cobalt Entertainment in North Hollywood where his focus is high resolution digital 3D live action production. With his newly developed 3D camera tools, Schklair has completed several real time sports shoots which culminated in placing multiple 3D camera systems at the 2004 Superbowl in Houston. He has over 20 year's experience in the entertainment industry including VP at Digital Domain and co-founder and co-owner of Infinity Filmworks. Mr. Schklair has a Masters degree from the USC School of Cinema and is a member of the Advanced Technology Committee at the American Society of Cinematographers (ASC), and on the SMPTE Stereoscopic Digital Cinema Study Group.
