3D Doctor Who Is Coming
The BBC is planning to use stereoscopic 3D to try to attract younger viewers to the new series of Doctor Who. A 40-second 3D trailer has been commissioned to showcase the arrival of a new actor, Matt Smith, playing The Doctor
Red Bee Media made the commercial, with effects and grading work completed by The Mill. The promo was shot in 2D and is being converted to 3D by the Soho facility.
The trail will be shown in cinemas and at external promotional screening events across the country in March under the banner of Meet a Monster.
If it was shot in 2D and is then converted, can any program be converted I wonder?
