Anybody shooting in 3D?

I am going to be working on an independent film and the Ex. Producer asked me to look into the possibility of shooting in 3D. From what I can tell so far shooting 3D is a real art form that requires different spacing of the cameras for different types of scenes. The term for those skilled in this art is "stereographer".

Anybody out there shooting 3D successfully? Seems like a lots of extra work to do it right.

Thanks, Marc

If it were me, I would do everything in my power to dissuade the from shooting an indy film in 3D (especially if I had never worked in 3D).

There is a big difference between hobbiest-like films and 90-minute narrative film.

Thanks Jay, that's the way I was leaning. I like to try and do things right and it sounds like it would create a lot of extra problems.

Seems to me like Indi films are the better place to learn about shooting in 3D. If you ever plan to learn it.

To be honest I have little interest in 3D but I would learn if that's what I need to do. I'm still wondering if it's a fad at this point. Personally I don't really care to watch movies in 3D and find them distracting from the story.

I liked the 3D in the 50's, I liked the 3D slide viewers , I like the 3D transmitted over the major networks without using a 3D tv in the 2000's.
