What I learned in Bradford...

The 3D In Your Face event in Bradford cemented some of my thoughts and instincts with regard to the Regent Redcar project and beyond...
The currently held industry consensus is that 3D is best and most suited to cinema - TV is not really viable at this point, despite the fact that Sky are pushing it very heavily indeed - there's just not enough quality content to fill the schedules 24 hours a day.
Not only that but people often multitask in front of the TV and that becomes very awkward when you're wearing glasses.
The cinema experience is dedicated; you don't take a laptop in, nor read a paper or chat to a friend - youmfocus on the film, and the more 3D films that are made, the more will be learned about the technique and the better the product will be. Piracy of 3D films is currently unheard of and the multiple, incompatible systems suggest it won't be easy to copy anytime soon; if younwant the best and newest films in 3D, the cinema is THE only place to go - good news if you've recently installed a top end digital projector!
Common opinion of 3D films is that they are worth paying a little extra for, well the Regent charges less for a 3D presentation than any of the multiplexes charge for a student matinee performance!
