With an emphasis on using the best ‘tools for the job’, Vision3 explores how all forms of the latest 3D techniques (including native 3D filming, post conversion, stereo rendering and hybrids of all three) can be used to present a new way to tell stories and enhance the excitement and impact for audiences.
Built around the 30 years of stereo 3D experience that Chris Parks and Angus Cameron have between them, the company was formed in 2008 with the objective of working directly with the Studios, production teams and key heads of departments in ensuring that 3D adds genuine benefit and value to the Director’s narrative and stylistic intention.
Beginning in pre-production and continuing through to delivery, Vision3 provides the central voice of authority for 3D - working in cooperation with the camera, editorial, VFX and design departments.
Chris Parks and Angus Cameron are supported by a dedicated and experienced team from their London based review facility. Their award winning database and management system, Thera, conforms the film several times a day to ensure the stereo team can always review material in context – a requirement guided by Vision3’s philosophy that 3D shouldn’t be about individual shots but about the impact across the full form of the movie.
The facility enables real time reviews with stereo conversion companies around the world and close interaction with VFX vendors. It also enables the stereo supervisor to complete depth grade and stereo enhancements as the 3D version is developed rather than taking extra time in the DI.
Recent projects, including the academy award winning Gravity, Pan, Edge of Tomorrow and the forthcoming Heart of the Sea, demonstrate how an innovative approach to pushing the creative boundaries beyond the accepted industry standard can result in ground breaking 3D cinema.
Vision3 are 5 time recipients of the International 3D Society's ‘Lumiere Award’ including Best Stereography in 2014 for Gravity.
