Just about anything we can think of will be delivered in 3D soon, as we’re consistently reporting new 3D content on a daily basis. 3net will be teaming up with Discovery, IMAX, and Sony to re-create Civil War scenes and deliver them to the masses in 3D.
The special will be airing this fall, and according to a press release will have 3D photos from the tumultuous period combined with the 3D re-enactments. Billed as The Civil War 3D, viewers will get opposing viewpoints from a narrative perspective, and with scenes shot on location, including Gettysburg, expect quite an experience.
Tom Cosgrove, CEO of 3net, explains that this is only the beginning. Plenty of 3D content is on the way including dramas and plenty of scripted series’ so if you’re in the market for such viewing, you’re in luck. As the 3D giants have been releasing better technology, the biggest knock has included the omission of great 3D content. Well, not anymore…
The good news is that 3net plans on shooting in 3D instead of shooting in 2D and then converting it, which should help push the expectations of the quality of such productions. What’s your verdict? Are you interested in watching some Civil War re-enactments in 3D? This fall we’ll be able to check this concept out…
