Shooting 3D movie--what would we need?
Ok, this is just hypothetical at this time, but a business contact of mine is kicking around the idea of shooting a 3D movie. It would involve a script that is 50% everyday shooting, interiors, exteriors, and 50% cgi with green screen. It's basically a sci-fi movie. I have the book that I'm turning into a script. Anyway, I don't have the expertise with cameras to understand what it would take for a good standard 3D rig, plus sound rig to meet the needs of current 3D filming standards. We would need to keep costs down so I'm thinking a DIY rig with a couple of top-notch SLRs synced would be possible. The 3D cgi is a whole different issue that would be dealt with separately. We have other ideas up our sleeves, but for now we just need to do a feasibility study. Living in Michigan we have studios locally that can be rented. Anyway, what you are willing to share would be appreciated.
Edit: And yes, I'm aware we have a steep learning curve to go through and cameras are just a small part.
