DOCS IN 3D: FICTION OR REALITY? (MASTER CLASS) [+]More information

Josep Maria Aragonés

We will all remember 2010 as the year that marked the appearance of countless film premieres in 3D, new blockbusters and the incorporation of 3D projections in many theatres. TV channels and television screen manufacturers also seem to be tending towards the 3D phenomenon. Regardless of whether or not this new dimension will ultimately take root, we are invited to reflect on 3D viewing’s contribution to the audiovisual language and more specifically, on its contribution to the area of the documentary. Thus, we will analyse the 3D phenomenon from two perspectives: that of language and that of technology.
