3-D Revolution: The History of Modern Stereoscopic Cinema

Ray Zone


3-D Revolution: The History of Modern Stereoscopic Cinema traces the rise of modern 3-D technology from Arch Oboler’s Bwana Devil, the 1952 film that launched the 1950s 3-D boom in Hollywood, to James Cameron’s Avatar, the 2009 release that confirmed 3D film as an enduring part of theatrical entertainment. A comprehensive approach examines the technology for production and exhibition of 3D films and investigates the business, culture, and aesthetics of the genre.
