The Society’s Century Award was presented to Steve Schklair, Founder and CEO of 3ality Technica, whose camera systems have been used for films including: “The Hobbit: Desolation of Smaug,” “The Great Gatsby,” and “U2 3D in Concert.”
“It is clear from these winners that 3D is maturing as an art form,” said Society Awards Chairman Buzz Hays. “From live action, to animated, to concert movies, to documentaries, today’s audiences are experiencing 3D in astounding and exciting new productions like never before,” he commented.
In two new “Advanced Imaging” categories, the Society presented Lumiere statuettes to “Space: Unraveling the Cosmos” (3net Studios) for “4K Documentary” and “Breaking Bad” (AMC) for “4K Entertainment.”
“Many of tonight’s honorees are now bound for the Academy Awards, which indicates just how far 3D as an art form has come,” said Society President Jim Chabin. “Ultra-High Def and 4K programming is fast becoming a new standard as we move into the next decade. ‘Breaking Bad’ and ‘Space: Unraveling the Cosmos’ boldly embraced this new digital technology. The enhanced quality of their productions using 4K was brilliant,” added Chabin.
