3DFLIC (3D Film Innovation Consortium)

PI: Dr. Robert Allison
PI: Dr. Laurie Wilcox
3D FLIC is housed at York University’s Faculty of Fine Arts. Bringing together a uniquely interdisciplinary team of scientists, filmmakers and industry leaders, 3D FLIC (3D Film Innovation Consortium) bridges fundamental research in stereoscopic perception with the development of stereoscopic 3D (S3D) film language and production, while building the capacity of the S3D production clusters in the Greater Toronto Area. Toronto, Ontario is a global center of excellence in Stereoscopic 3D Cinema. Local companies and researchers have been at the forefront of innovation in stereoscopic film since the earliest days and continue to lead the world with advances in production, postproduction and display technologies. Competition, interest and international activity in the field have exploded with these advances that have enabled the widespread adoption of digital cinema technology. 3DFLIC has been funded by grants from NSERC, OCE and OMDC.

These were both taken at Cinespace Studio's Kleinburg set where we shot footage for one of our experiments on perception of space in S3D content as a function of interaxial separation.
