U2 in 3D, hold the goggles

February 20, 2006

Source: @U2

If you've been following along with Willie Williams' diary on U2.com, you've seen a half-dozen hints about film shoots, 3D, and other mysterious things that will apparently end when "we go in for the kill in Buenos Aires," as Willie put it.

Say what?

Apparently, U2 is doing the Buenos Aires concerts on March 1st and 2nd as a 3D HD (three-dimensional high definition) film shoot, with plans to produce an IMAX film. According to Definition Magazine, they're using gear provided by Pace Technologies, which has Titanic, The Abyss, and several other Hollywood blockbusters on its portfolio. Also involved in the production is 3ality, a company which specializes in 3D viewing ... get this ... that doesn't require any special eyewear. Freakin' cool!

Word is that all of the shows so far on the 4th leg are testing grounds for the cameras/technology, and that the Buenos Aires shows will be shot with nine (9) 3DHD cameras & crews.

Also, bearing goodies to brighten your day:

Does it mention who would be directing this possible 3D project? I'm not sure if I can handle the visual end of a normal U2 concert film blown up to IMAX size.

I didn't see any mention of direction, though given the fact that they've used the same crew for the last three films...

It's a big giant larger-than-life sized experience, basically, with perfect sound quality. http://www.imax.com/ImaxWeb/imaxExperience.do?param_section=whatImax¶m_subMenuSelect=whatImaxSelect

Maybe it will come out this summer when you're over here!

Oh right, I don't think I have one near me at all. Probably won't even get it in the UK because well, when do we get good stuff? Lol!

THANK THE LORD FOR AN IMAX IN NEWPORT, KENTUCKY!

And just for the extra bang, thank goodness for an OMNIMAX here in Cincinnati!! :)

Let's hope they actually SHOW it now.
