"Gravity", the next S-3D movie milestone, four years after "Avatar": Come, listen, float, and meet with stereographic supervisor Chris Parks

On 7 October, USA Today titled: "Gravity gives a rocket boost to 3-D technology." Ticket sales on the opening weekend in the US rocketed to $55.6 millions, with 3D accounting for 80% of the revenues. The following two quotes say it all! Jim Chabin: "Something very special is happening here. They used the 3D so boldly in this film, and the audience is going along for the ride." Alfonso Cuarón: "3-D is fundamental for the experience of Gravity. The movie's immersive quality can only be fully experienced in 3-D, from the vastness of space to the intimate isolation of the characters, the intense power of debris collisions to the serenity of the ever-present Earth. With 3-D, audiences float in space." Come and join Chris Parks in orbit on 6 Dec and discover why Gravity is a shot in the arm for 3D, and raises the bar again. This keynote presentation is brought to you in collaboration with the "International 3D & Advanced Imaging Society", based in Hollywood, CA. And it will take place at the Professional Conference of 3D Stereo MEDIA, on 6 Dec. 2013 in Liège.
