3D Game Shows Coming Soon? And Another 3D Education Opportunity

Michael here. The Hollywood Reporter has an article about a 3D clip of Wheel of Fortune that was screened Friday morning on the Sony lot at an open house for Sony's new 3D Technology Center. The Center's purpose is to spearhead 3D R&D as well as provide production training.

from THR:

Harry Friedman, executive producer of "Wheel" and "Jeopardy!," introduced the clip.

"One of the biggest challenges is keeping a game show fresh -- by changing the show without changing the game," he said. "We do that with enhanced production value, such as set design. We typically do dimensionalized sets, which are made for 3D."

A timetable for a 3D version of "Wheel" is not in place.

On hand at the event was International Cinematographers Guild president Steven Poster, who confirmed that the ICG would work with the center to offer training for its membership. "This is a real boon for the industry," he said. "We have not been able to implement training because of a lack of facilities."

Training will be offered in directing, cinematography, video game development and live-events production. The first sessions are slated to begin next month.
