At the Advanced Imaging Society’s (AIS) 2019 Lumiere Awards, which recognize outstanding and technically advanced achievements in the creation of immersive storytelling, work by Deluxe’s Stereo D was honored in several categories. Steven Spielberg’s “Ready Player One” was awarded Best Stereography, Best Live Action 3D film and Best 2D-3D conversion; Stereo D handled the film’s conversion to 3D. Stereo D also handled the 3D conversion of Marvel’s “Black Panther,” which earned Best Immersive Experience.
Peter Jackson’s First World War documentary “They Shall Not Grow Old” received a special Governor’s Award; the stunning film offers audiences a new look at the front line through original archival footage that was painstakingly transformed, colorized and converted to stereo 3D by Stereo D, breathing new life into 100-year old stories.
Held at the Warner Bros. lot in Burbank, this year’s Lumiere Awards marked the 10th anniversary of the annual ceremony and attendees were treated to a surprise appearance by Tom Cruise, who was on hand to present “Mission Impossible – Fallout” Director Christopher McQuarrie with the AIS’ Harold Lloyd Award. Stereo D is proud to have contributed to such remarkable projects and is honored to have the efforts of its talented teams recognized by the AIS.
