DIY 3D Camera Rig – How to Make a 3D Camera I may not have access to the custom-designed 3D camera rigs or $300-plus-million budget that James Cameron had for Avatar, but that shouldn't mean I can't produce my own movie with breathtaking—well, okay, at least passable—3D effects. True, the task may seem daunting and expensive at first. After all, the cheapest 3D camcorder on the market right now is Panasonic's $21,000 AG-3DA1, and even that requires a constellation of specialized equipment and software to deliver usable 3D footage. What's more, the gear that electronics manufacturers are just now introducing to the market to edit and play 3D content requires an almost total replacement of your existing computer and AV equipment. Fortunately for me, a hobbyist subculture has sprung up to address the unmet need for low-production-value at-home 3D moviemaking—a movement dedicated to the art of building stereoscopic camera rigs using two off-the-shelf inexpensive camcorders mounted on a rail.

Cinematic Irony: The Strange Case of Nicholas Ray’s Johnny Guitar - Feature - Issue #13 Cinematic Irony: The Strange Case of Nicholas Ray’s Johnny Guitar Westerns and “Westerns” There is little question that Nicholas Ray’s Johnny Guitar (1954) is immediately recognizable as an instance of a genre that had become quite important to Hollywood well into the 1950s. The future, it would seem. The present and past, perhaps, but again rather self-consciously displayed, as if primarily decorative. Moreover, if we start with this last element and work through these familiar elements, virtually every aspect of this traditional framework is present, but “off” in some way, so much so that the excess emotion, elaborate, self-conscious emphasis on costumes, posed and theatrical sets and staging, have seemed to some to cross the line over into camp, or at least near self-parody. So Vienna is only a “saloon owner” strategically; in essence, she is an investor and speculator, and clearly a very good one. Near to parody, but it never crosses the line.

'Compliance,' A Low Budget Indie, Might Be The Most Disturbing Movie Ever Made NEW YORK -- Halfway through a special screening of "Compliance," the deeply unsettling new film from writer/director Craig Zobel, a woman stood up, yelled out, "Give me a f*cking break," and walked out of the theater. As the film progressed, other women joined her. At least eight by one count, although in the question-and-answer session following the film, someone suggested that actually 10 had left during the screening. "Compliance," shown on Tuesday night at a special screening and panel put together by Psychology Today, is not a Holocaust drama or a gory war film or a Lars Von Trier genital mutilation-fest. It was also, without a doubt, the most uncomfortable film experience of my life. Further compounding the psychologically disturbing nature of "Compliance" is the fact that it is based almost entirely on true events. The film is based on one such event, which occurred at a McDonald's in Mount Washington, Ky., in 2004. "Nobody in this room would have fallen for it? Loading Slideshow
