James Cameron is again in the news for 3D. He wants all TV producers to invest more money in the 3D show.
While talking in a Seoul technology forum, he said that filmmakers face many challenges while converting 2D into 3D. According to him people should shoot directly in 3D in place of converting 2D to 3D all over the world as many people today are shooting in 3D. Future belongs to 3D and we are going to have many 3D TVs around us. To show so many programs on it we need thousands of hours CDs of sports, comedy, music and other entertainment.
According to him the concentration should be on 3D content in place of money. People should not bother about money. Since 3D TVs are already in the market now there is no time for converting 2D into 3D. Now the future shoot should be in 3D.
Everybody should learn how to do live 3D shooting. This will bring the cost of 3D shooting down. Everything is available today. The channel, the sets, the only thing which is missing is the content which production people need to get.
James Cameron is one of the few directors who have worked on 3D content with Avatar. Avatar was officially the highest grossing film of all the time. Cameron speaks with Confidence as he can be considered the most experienced director to work on 3D technology.
Avatar is the most expensive film because he used 3D technology which was created from the ground up. All the TV giants like Sony, Samsung, LG and Panasonic will be very happy to know that Cameron is backing 3D technology as these companies have invested very heavily in their 3D TVs.
