Adjusting the Promise of Stereoscopy

A session at Expanded Animation 2015

Saturday 5th September, 2015

5:15pm to 6:00pm (CET)

So soon after the most recent ‘3D revolution’ an apparent dwindling enthusiasm for stereoscopic film asks for a fresh look at its opportunities, limitations and strategies.
Has the promise of emersion or of an amplified emotive experience been delivered?
So far it seems, Hollywood is allowed to define and rule over the potency of the spatial dimension in film. Were unforeseen opportunities overlooked or are yet to be discovered?
Alongside examples of experimental or unusual 3D works, the talk will explore the impact of stereoscopic vision on strategies of narration, augmentation, empathy generation and cognitive behaviour in general.
Additionally it will focus, if stereoscopic animation has an advantage over camera shot 3D for generating an explorative, surprising and emotive experience.
