Michael Bay and James Cameron Discussing 3D in Transformers 3

James Cameron and Michael Bay talking about the future of 3D technology. Both directors sat down for the first time to have an extended public conversation about the technology and its use in the new movie industry. Here is the full 15-minute version of that video courtesy of THR.  check out the video below:

Here is a snippet from the video above of Bay talking about the cost of 3D:

The bottom line is, if you want to do good 3D, it’s very expensive. The camera equipment is expensive because it comes with a lot of techs, the labor. When you’re doing special effects, you have digital artists, but they have to do about a third more work when they have to match two eyes. So depending how many shots you have, that incrementally increases. And there’s a lot of tech fixes — it’s not easy shooting 3D. It’s never technically perfect, like where you shoot film and you get it back from a lab and it’s like, “Oh, that’s great.” It doesn’t come out like that with 3D….Bottom line in terms of financial impact, it’s about $30 million to the budget.
