Brian May's QUEEN in 3D
I had the opportunity to attend the book launch and special preview of QUEEN in 3-D by Brian May at The Walt Disney Studio lot in Burbank. Upon entering the screening room on display out in front were Brian May's 3-D cameras which were used to photograph all the images in his new book.
Sitting in the theater going over image by image with May was an absolute blast traveling down memory lane and hearing first hand his travels and unforgettable live performances from the man himself. The audience in the theater were glued to all his candid stories as well as the huge and ecstatic reactions to all the incredible 3-D images that were on display. It was truly an experience that can't be replicated.
During the book signing I got to meet the guys of The Stereo Club of Southern California where they had a collection of their own 3-D camera's on display. Although I must admit that the majority of my geek out moment was talking to John Rupkalvis of Stereoscope International about his independently designed cameras along with his beautifully pristine Bolex Stereo film camera.
