This week we sat down with 3D rig and software company 3ality Technica's Stephen Pizzo
to discuss their newest products and how they played a part in the filming of recent giant Hollywood films as Prometheus
. Turns out, Pizzo (3ality Technica's senior vice president) told us, it was Head Cinematographer Dariusz Wolski that convinced Ridley Scott that 3D
was a possibility for a film such as the Alien prequel Prometheus - and that with the gear that was available today, they could film the movie the with the same ease and precision they'd be afforded with 2D equipment. In fact, 3D was made possible with essentially no extra effort on the part of the film crew; read on for the first part of the full SlashGear interview.
