Director's Chair: Gareth Edwards - 'Monsters'

Feel Good Stereo 3D
Published: September 2, 2010

Many new feature films — 3D and live action — are being released in stereo 3D these days, and one of the most important ways to ensure this growth continues is to make sure the experience leaves the audience wanting to come back as opposed to wanting to toss their popcorn.
