Will We be in 3D?

After Avatar has had time to settle, the question still remains; what’s next for 3D?

When I left the screen, I found my eyes were burning with the strain of having to take in the whole of the screen and all it tried to offer. I could not help but think, that while it is early days for the technology, will it really progress with the rest of the 2-dimensional cinema, or fade into the background to join hollywood’s long list of forgotten.

How far will directors and producers go in order to make us; the audience, a character, and how far can it go? Even with 3D, I feel, the old-fashioned greats will never be trumped and remakes of films like The Matrix, to this format, will only end up losing the essence of the experience and more of investor’s money.

    Just wait till we have “the feelies” like in Aldous Huxley’s Brave New World. Holy crap! Until then though, I think that it’s too early to tell whether 3D is here to stay or not. Way back when it had a resurgence, there were tons of 3D films made in a single year then it disappeared altogether. Who knows. It looks really cool though it doesn’t add much to the story. If anything, it’s just about adding spectacle. Not that I mind since my eyes nearly exploded into candy after watching Avatar but still, there’s only so much you can do to immerse someone in a movie. The only thing that will really change cinema going is to make it interactive somehow, like beaming it into your brain.

    That seems to be the next stage; making you a character in it all..
