an idea...3-D Kung Fu films on video

Recommended Posts

It probably would be cheaper to shoot a martial arts film for the field sequential (shutter glass) home video market, than for theatrical distribution or even straight to home video. The Nu-View (and its Korean knock off) can turn almost any video recorder (consumer or pro) into a 3-D video camera for less than $300 US. Plus, it somes with a field sequential viewing system. There is a decent market for field sequential movies. It's still small, but it is growing. Most of the 3-D material available is either travelogues, extreme sports, soft core porn, scenic nature views, or Imax shorts. The few movies that are available are horror movies, all shot using the Nu-View system. Or 3-D conversions of 2-D films, like The Fists Of Fury,The Five Venoms, or Little Shop Of Horrors (1960). I think if someone was shooting an old school martial arts/ swordplay, etc... and couldn't afford to shoot on digibeta or super 16. 3-D field sequential would make a film shot on consumer DV commerically marketable.

If I had $250 to toss around and a few extra days to make movies SOLELY for that system I'd do it for sure. But there doesn't seem to be any demand at all, plus you have to have THOSE glasses specifically. I think SP will stick to 2D for now :D
