This site is managed by Neil Nathanson as a labor of love.
I discovered stereoscopy in 2006 while supervising a CGI dept at Mercedes-Benz USA. CGI is Computer Generated Imagery, making images and animations from the geometry of shapes and mathematical definitions of textures and lighting. Most people are familiar with CGI via movies such as Toy Story, Shrek and others. The unique aspect for me was CGI is a 3D world for creation that mostly was output in 2D in our projects. I was fascinated by the idea of outputting our 3D art in 3D. Once I learned about how to do that my adventure began.
Today I have multiple 3D camera setups and have created 3D in many ways including CGI, photography, illustration and conversion of existing 2D images. I have also created 3D animation and video.
Harvey Hirsch (ADCNJ Awards Show Chairman) saw what I was doing and had the idea to bring this topic to the ADCNJ for education and inspiration. I am glad to have Harvey as a friend and together we have crafted this blog.
The artists featured on this site are my Internet friends, most of whom I have never met in person, but through their creative efforts and our online discussions I have come to know them well. My hope is you are as inspired by their work as I have been and that we can give you the 3D “bug” and send you on a satisfying journey of learning and creativity.
