Watching Titanic 3D!

Watched Titanic in 3D!

It's great being a blogger! 
As a blogger, I get invitations to many events! The most recent was this; the premier of Titanic 3D! 

While I don't usually attend such events, but this, I simply cannot miss! 
 I loved this movie so much that back when it was first shown theaters in 1997 (Gosh, 15 years ago!), I watched it three times! And just about a week ago, I was mesmerized by the in-depth story of the vessel & voyage at the Titanic exhibition!

Titanic, the exhibition at the ArtScience Museum Marina Bay Sands

The nice folks at omy.sg (blogging community) gave me a pair of invites, so I invited Daisy along. Daisy is huge fan of Titanic! And not just the movie..


So this marks the 4th time I watched Titanic the movie! This isn't the same as the original movie, it was re-made in 3D!

 I'm still extremely fascinated by how they managed to accomplish this. How do you turn a 2D, single-lens recording into a 3D film?

According to a few articles I read online, each frame was manually processed by first determining the depths of each object then applying the 3D effects to it. A whopping 279,000 frames! They spent US$18million and 60 weeks to accomplish this feat! 

I was first skeptical on how good the "effects" will be, but I was pleasantly surprised! The whole 3hr movie was rendered so perfectly that you'll get lost in the world and you simply cannot believe that it was shot on a single-lens camera!

Remember this scene? This is one of the most beautiful scenes in the movie, and watching it in 3D really brings a whole new experience! Just this scene alone made the movie very worth watching!

Titanic 3D opens 4th April in cinemas island-wide!

And the Titanic exhibition is now showing at the Marina Bay Sands ArtScience museum till 29 April 
Both are something you shouldn't miss!

Thank you to all the nice people over at omy.sg for this wonderful experience! :-)

With Love,
