First things first, Rene has moved her Project 365 – 2010 to here blog Lil Vixen Stirs Things Up so go check it out there and follow that blog – it’s a daily adventure!
Now on to today.
Yesterday ended up being a really productive day – who would’ve thought after posting my video at 12:45 in the morning? By 10pm things were set-up, emails were done and phone calls were completed. If, after all this, I’m not involved in the making of a movie by the end of this year then I don’t know what to do.
Today time just flew by! The time was spent maintaining the organization that was getting done yesterday, follow up calls and being active on the social networks. Social networks are as much a part of business for me as a phone or email. In addition to today’s picture I have included a conversation from my Facebook page. I have often talked about the benefits of social networking and today one of those benefits showed up on my page. It all started with a tweet and turned into a really good conversation:
Curtis Andersen Didn’t buy an HDTV yet? That’s ok, 3D content starts getting broadcast in the spring. So I guess you need an HD3DTV? Gonna’ be expensive.
i’m sticking with my rabbit eared black & white!
Matt – do you know if the Real-D or other company glasses will work with the tech that’s coming out?
Dean: Filmmakers are already on board. Studios love the fact that ticket prices are higher, so they’re on board and the Japanese have a channel already dedicated to 3-D programming. It’s been around for about a year. It might be a fad, but there’s a LOT of investment going into it. If those glasses get cheap, or useful for multiple platforms I think you’ll see the public ready to accept 3-D entertainment.
Now where the hell are the flying cars?!?!?!?!!?
Still, I look at the market this way. People who wanted a HDTV have either bought one or have been waiting for them to get cheaper (like these last few months) to buy one. And so who will be buying the super expensive HD3DTV’s? The very small percent that makes up the rich uber-geek. And even they have seen the ills of early adoption most recently with early blu-ray players. And on top of it all, 3D requires special glasses (for now), and if you have friends over you have to have these not-so-cheap glasses for everyone. I think it’s going to be a while before it’s anywhere near mainstream. If ever.
