The future of 3D is blurry at best, as more and more industry leaders expressÂ their concerns with theÂ technologyÂ and its long-term viability. Â Hollywood editor and sound designer,Â Walter Murch is the latest skeptic to come out, explaining his viewpoint in a letter to Roger Ebert:
…dark, small, stroby, headache inducing, alienating. And expensive. The question is: how long will it take people to realize and get fed up?
You can read Walter’s full letter here: http://blogs.suntimes.com/ebert/2011/01/post_4.html
I must say, I tend to agree with Murch, but enjoy watching the industry try to figure this out. Â In the end, it’s all part of the creative process. Â Some love it, some hate it…and the technology isÂ evolving. Â Â For me, I think 3D has it’s place, maybe not to the extent some TV manufacturers are hoping, but suspect it will stick around for years to come. Â Do I plan on purchasing a 3D TV anytime soon, NO!
