The world is flat, if you look at it from the right perspective. Home entertainment is also mostly 2D, if you view it from our U. S. perspective. But according to Al Caudullo, who is known as the “3D Evangelist,” the rest of the world is roundly formed with lots of interest in 3D in all media, becoming a market of which many domestic producers aren’t even aware.
As founder of 3DGuy Productions, Caudullo had just flown into Los Angeles from his home base in Bangkok, in August to conduct the “3Days of 3D” workshop. He was backed up by a roster of Hollywood- based 3D luminaries in front of a sold-out crowd at Michael Page’s 3D Stereolab.
Although Caudullo demonstrated his theories about 3D production using cutting- edge equipment like Panasonic’s new twin lens AG-3DP1 camcorder recording to an Atomos Ninja in Pro Rez HQ, much of the workshop’s “How to be Profitable with 3D” theme was fulfilled with his demonstration of the new 3D capabilities of Grass Valley’s v. 6.5 Edius Pro NLE software just released last June.
“Edius loves the Panasonic cameras,” Caudullo beams. “We were able to attach the P2 cards from the AG-3DP1 directly to it and begin editing their 3D material on the EDIUS timeline even before the transfer was completed. I’m convinced that this kind of 3D technology enables you to produce quality 3D on an indie budget without spending a million dollars.”
With his international perspective obtained, in part, by having instigated Asia’s first 3D filmmaking curriculum at Mahidol University in Bangkok, Caudullo is convinced that the biggest market for 3DTV is not in America right now.
