From Magic Journeys to Captain EO to MuppetVision 3D to Honey, I Shrunk the Audience to Captain EO, one film camera provided all the magic and it was Hines’ 3-D Camera Rig that made the magic happen. Now, according to Variety, Disney and Steve Hines will be recognized for their efforts by the International 3D Society on October 19 at Mann’s Chinese Theater in Hollywood. Earlier this year, both Disney/Pixar’s UP and its accompanying short Partly Cloudy were recognized when the award was given out for the first time.
Pictured to the left is the actual 3D camera rig as it was displayed at the Disney Parks and Resorts booth at the 2009 Disney D23 Expo. For more information on the rig along with several photos of its creation and use, check out Steve Hine’s company’s page on it here.
