Leading 2D-3D feature film production studio Stereo D, a subsidiary of Deluxe Entertainment Services, has announced its participation in 3D: DOUBLE VISION opening at the Los Angeles County Museum of Art (LACMA) and on view from July 15, 2018 through March 31, 2019. It is the first American exhibition to survey a full range of artworks, dating from 1838 to the present, that produce the illusion of three dimensions.
The award-winning studio known for its work on feature films ranging from James Cameron’s TITANIC in 3D to Marvel’s Avengers: Infinity Wars, Stereo D began consulting with Head of the Wallis Annenberg Photography Department and the Prints and Drawings Department at LACMA, Britt Salvesen, and the exhibition’s technical consultant, Jill Smolin, for the project in 2016 on stereo presentation technology and imagery. The Stereo D team, led by Johnny Fisk, VP Production Animation and Scott Johnston, VP Animation, Art, and Technology, and artist KC Barnes then went to work on the digital image restoration of the archival still photography, film and video footage, and artworks.

“The proprietary tools we use to create full length feature films in 3D enabled us to assist the LACMA team with the digital image cleaning and stereo rectification, as well as preparing the archival material for the various formats used in the exhibition while maintaining the integrity of the original imagery,” said Stereo D’s founder and President William Sherak. “We’re thrilled our artists and technology could be part of this important show.”
