Albuquerque, NM – Production Outfitters recently produced 3D stock footage of the Albuquerque International Balloon Fiesta. Director/DP Gary Marsh, Stereographers Erik Donald and Allan Crawford shot for three days capturing amazing HD, 3D stock footage.  "3D stock footage is a growing demand that we are meeting every day here at Production Outfitters."  Marsh adds.  "We have constructed our own rig to support true, HD 3D using our existing high end Sony CineAlta 2/3 in chip cameras, to achieve true cinematic HD, 3D production."

3D Shoot and Edit

Production Outfitters recently completed a stereo 3D shoot and edit for Sandia National Labs.

Albuquerque, NM – April 24, 2010 – Production Outfitters recently completed a stereo 3D shoot and edit for Sandia National Labs.

The  purpose was to shoot stereoscopic 3D footage of an experiment and compare the footage to the computer generated 3D model.  To capture the footage two separate 3D rigs were used.  One equipped with Phantom high speed cameras rolling at 7000 fps on Canon lenses set at 330 millimeters and one equipped with a pair of  JVC GY HD 100’s. The shot added an additional challenge as the size of the subject matter was about the size of a hand and could only be viewed by a mirror. In addition the cameras had to be behind glass in a separate room.

“Using our existing inventory our stereographic team simulated tests in the field and in our studio to prove we could deliver solid S3D production, stereo 3D field monitoring and an efficient post-production workflow in a short amount of time.”  Says Gary Marsh President and Director of Photography at Production Outfitters. The shoot was on Tuesday and the edited product was delivered on Friday for viewing on the Labs 40ft Sony S3D Digital Cinema Theatre.
