The future of 3D entertainment will take center stage at the NAB Show as filmmaker James Cameron and cinematographer and CEO of PACE, Vince Pace, have been tapped to deliver the opening keynote address Monday, April 11.
Cameron, creative force behind the two highest grossing motion pictures of all time, and Pace, described as a visual effects “visionary” and 3D innovator, will discuss developments in 3D technology and storytelling and implications for the entertainment industry.
NAB said Cameron's films have blazed trails in visual effects and set performance records. His films have earned nominations and awards from a variety of organizations, including "Titanic's" 14 Academy Award nominations (a record) and 11 Oscars (the most any movie has received), which included Cameron's wins for Best Picture, Best Direction and Best Editing. "Avatar" won Golden Globes for Best Director and Best Picture, and won three of the nine Academy Awards for which it was nominated. "Avatar's" cinematography was the result of a collaboration between director James Cameron and cinematographer Vince Pace.
Cameron, Pace and PACE President Patrick Campbell developed technology for the stereoscopic acquisition system called Fusion 3D. Individually and collectively, Cameron, Pace and Fusion 3D have been involved in "Avatar," "Tron: Legacy," "Aliens of the Deep," "Ghosts of the Abyss," "Titanic," "The Abyss," "Expedition: Bismark" and "U2 3D."
