Puss in Boots:

The Last Wish

Converting ‘Puss in Boots: The Last Wish’ to Stereo 3D

Stereographer Jeremy Carroll discusses the careful, creative decisions needed to convert animation, including the depth of a scene and how exaggerated the action can be so audience’s eyes don’t become fatigued and ruin their experience.

Stereographer Jeremy Carroll has worked at SDFX Studios (formerly StereoD) for 12 years, overseeing the stereo 3-D conversion of more than 35 feature films including the re-imagining of Jaws this past fall, done in conjunction with Amblin’ Entertainment, Universal Studios and Steven Spielberg. He also supports the team on a large number of Marvel projects.
