Join Elvira, Mistress of the Dark - in the 3rd Dimension
Originally released in IMAX theatres, Encounter in the Third Dimension
is a groundbreaking venture into the realm of 3D filmmaking. 3D sight gags abound
in this thrilling presentation that integrates State-of-the-Art CGI (computer
graphics imagery) Technology and live action to explore the history of
3D photography and 3D motion pictures.
With over 100,000 hours of digital rendering required to create the computer
graphics imagery in the film, Encounter in the Third Dimension represents an
incredible achievement in digital filmmaking. Audiences encounter a re-creation
of one of the earliest 3D movies ever made as well as classic film clips
from Hollywood's 3D heyday during the 1950's.
Experience the Wildest 3D Adventure ever created!
movie begins in the digitally created Institute of 3-D Technology, where the
bright, but slightly disorganized professor (played by Stuart Pankin), offers
the audience a crash course in 3D technology. Not content with dry scientific
explanations, the professor presents Elvira, Mistress of the Dark,
to show off his latest innovation, a new 3-D process called "Real-O-Vision."
When his demonstration goes awry, the professor enlists the services of his
wisecracking assistant, a flying robot named Max, to entertain
and educate the audience about the wonders of 3-D. To explain the history of
3D technology, Max takes the audience on a magical journey through time,
from early cave drawings to the invention of the world's first 3D stereoscopic
viewer in 1838.
There are many other cool 3D visuals in this movie, including a 100 foot liquid
chrome spider, a virtual roller-coaster ride and bio-morphic 3D skeletons. Determined
to prove that 3-D is bigger and better than ever, the professor lets the audience
take a sneak peek at his collection of some of the best 3-D creations of the
last 20 years. He proudly shows off exciting scenes from several theme park
films, including James Cameron's Terminator II 3D.
With newfound confidence, the Professor again cranks up his Real-O-Vision machine
and this time it actually works - Elvira comes to life in amazing 3D and conjures
up a feast for the eyes.
