Show Summary Details


This chapter discusses changes that occurred after the Festival of Britain. It asks the question whether the Festival of Britain played a part in the 3-D boom in Hollywood in the 1950s or not. Newer cameras were invented, thus improving the situation for stereographic pictures. The changes during this period contributed to the continuous evolution of digital 3-D cinema, and ensured that the alluring possibility of a new visual grammar for stereoscopic motion pictures presented itself once again.
