Production company captures explosive demolition in 3D
First implosion ever to be filmed in 3D for international broadcast to make U.S. debut on 3net
VANCOUVER, CANADA – It’s explosive demolition like you’ve never seen before.
For the first time ever a film company has shot, edited and delivered a documentary on structural implosions in 3D.
Parallax Film Productions Inc. used 20 custom-rigged cameras to stereoscopically capture the implosion of a 100,000-seater sports stadium in Salvador, Brazil from every conceivable angle.
This unprecedented visual experience, originally commissioned by History Television and National Geographic Channels International, has been acquired by the 24-hour 3D channel 3net and will make its U.S. debut this Sunday, Aug. 28.
“3net is trying to be the gold standard for 3D,” says Mark Ringwald, Director of Scheduling and Acquisitions for 3net, a joint venture between Discovery Communications, Sony and IMAX. “We work really hard to make sure everything is the best it can be in terms of 3D convergence.” “Blowdown 3D is a great story about collapsing a stadium, and all the 3D is really good.”
