    The vanguard of the 3D film and TV industry explains why 3D stereo techniques should become a staple visual storytelling tool, on par with lighting, set design, or sound. Words of wisdom from Jeffrey Katzenberg, Martin Scorsese, Dean DeBlois, Baz Luhrmann, Jon Landau, Barrie M. Osborne, Wim Wenders, and more, provide you with unparalleled insight into the leading minds in 3D. Not only is effective use of 3D in movies thoroughly covered, but also included is a chapter on live events, with insight from the people bringing us the FIFA World Cup in 3D, and those pushing the boundaries of 3D TV documentaries
