What is the MODEL and DESIGN for the new Studio for the broadband entertainment world?
The studio is a systems approach using the most advanced off the shelf technologies and also the new technologies from government and university labs.
The reason the Studio of the Future has not been created is because there is a missing link technology that is demanded for this systems integration. The “missing link” technology is a digital projector that creates a new canvas.
I have a feature film that is innovative and futuristic. It was done years ago and the Chicago film lab threw away the original when they went bankrupt. I use brilliant colors and the feature is set with circular images: a round water quarry is the location. The print has been transferred to the digital medium. I want to share this film with audiences on a new canvas: an over 40 feet curved Cinerama screen. The screens can be the smaller cinema screens also, but I would love to open the film in a specialty theater with a huge Cinerama screen. Also I would love to see the reissue of 2001: The Space Odyssey or Jaws in digital Cinerama. I want the colors to be full spectrum. I want the images to be film like with the saturated colors, and the smooth molecular surfaces. I do not want pixels or large mirror artifacts in the 40-foot or larger image. I do not want the image to look like a big television set.
I have created this new canvas, not only for myself as an artist, but for the other feature makers, past and present and in the future, who want their vision to be shown with the best image.
The electronic cinema world is not able to put the formula together because they do not have the projector. The formula however, extends beyond the limited version of replacing film projectors with digital projectors in existing theaters. The new studio creates a new leap to Immersive space, which is as much of a leap as silent to sound films, black and white to color, and now linear flat screen to Immersive dimensional space. Curved screens and infinite focus for dimensional imaging is needed for Immersive space.
Once this new canvas space is possible, there must be a “holographic” mind set for the systems integration approach for the new STUDIO. The performing artist can walk into the new digital studio, which we call a digital playpen (MetaShell) and use the toolbox to create their real time vision. In order for this to be possible, there needs to be a huge curved Immersive high resolution back set for interactivity. When the vision that the artist/engineer has created is captured, the audiences through out the world want to see the new art form shown in the best light. Thus the audiences can watch programming from the METASHELL (digital playpen) on the new canvas in their cinema/clubs, their arenas, and for the fortunate, in their high-end home theaters.
We virtual realists (group who know this concept is the studio of the future) were hoping that Dream Works would be the innovator. My contact there was Rob Hummel, who then went to Technicolor and pressed for the TI Digital mirror approach. We were disappointed to see that Dream Works did not deliver the new studio. Lucas has been innovative with the break throughs on every level and is working to push the envelope. Dream Works has the team with the savvy from the different disciplines (Film. Music, and digital graphics) to bring the Studio of the Future to the world. You also have investors such as Paul Allen who has the vision and also been calling for the new systems integration. His Experience Museum project called for new digital Cinerama. He placed millions into that project. The world is still waiting for a digital Cinerama projector.
I would like to have a meeting with Dream Works with my associate Mike Krieger who is attorney, PhD in Math and Computer Science and teacher in UCLA Business School to discuss our new studio concept. Also we would discuss the missing link technology and how this is the tool for the integration.
If you would like to do due diligence on our patented technology I will refer you to the two people who we have chosen to give a technology report on our technology and also who know the projection technology and what is the future competition.
1. SMPTE (Society of Motion Picture and Television Engineers) member who is a leading member of the Digital Cinema committee.
2. Former digital projector and digital systems consultant for TCI and now at Technicolor.
Please call at 818-795-2407 for these names and numbers. After you talk to these people to get their evaluation of the projector, we can proceed to have a discussion and demonstration of the technology.
