This is the first video from Neil Schneider’s presentation at SIGGRAPH 2009 which lead up to the announcement of the S-3D Gaming Alliance. Yes, this was a stereoscopic 3D presentation on a 40+ foot RealD projector.
The second video along with HD versions can be accessed on the S3DGA website.
Special thanks go to Yuriy Nikshych, Syd Bolton, Cris Villalobos, and Instant Effects S3D Presenter for making these PowerPoints possible. The second video also features panel discussions with Peter Lude, Senior Vice President of Engineering for Sony, and Joshua Greer, President and Co-Founder of RealD.
We will be getting videos of their presentation contributions together as well. We had to edit things down to a gaming focus to fit in the 20 minute limitations we have on video length and to also be appropriate for the S3DGA website.
The other day, MTBS learned that our interview with Patrick Naud, the Avatar Game Executive Producer at Ubisoft, was reprinted by a website called the Avatar Movie Zone. This is a fan based site 100% focused on the excitement around Avatar the movie and the game.
MTBS has seen all kinds of blogs and websites claiming to be the ultimate Avatar resource, and we couldn’t help but be impressed by this one. It features so much in the way of stylish graphics, content, and enthusiasm that we had to recognize it as our pick as the unofficial fan-based home of Avatar...they earned it. Furthermore, we are so impressed with their work, we have added them to our affiliate list.
Not enough news for you? Ok! You will like this. The new Avatar Trailer is out! Very impressive looking, indeed! Here are the links:
