Now in theaters…July 16, 2012
Hollywood insiders opened the eyes of doctors of optometry, students and paraoptometrics to the magic of 3-D possibilities at the Opening General Session for Optometry’s Meeting® last month.
Sponsored by Essilor, the session impressed audiences with explanations from experts such as Jim Chabin, president of the International 3D Society; Buzz Hayes, senior vice president and executive stereoscopic 3D producer for Sony 3D Technology Center at Sony Pictures Entertainment; Jim Mainard, head of digital strategy and new business development at DreamWorks; Graham Clark of StereoD, LLC; and Bob Whitehill, stereoscopic supervisor at Pixar Animation Studios.
The audience was treated to clips from films such as “The Lion King,” “Rise of the Guardians,” and “Spiderman.”
