Canon 7D Stereo 3D Setup white paper


We have recently been investigating the use of the Canon 7D as a 3D solution for our Leap of Faith short film. The 3D tech on the movie, Rami Santrisi, came up with a white paper in an attempt to layout the possibilities of using the 7D optimally if used as a stereo capture device. We are talking about using two Canon 7D’s attached in some way to enable this kind of capture. Here is the white paper:

As for which route we end up taking, that will depend on further testing. As of right now, Option #3 is the most optimal without any loss of resolution, but complete loss of access to the video feeds from either camera. The DP for the film will be assessing the impacts of using these options and moving forward with what he thinks would work best for the film. As always, we’ll try to keep you updated. Peace.

Leap of Faith short

Leap of Faith

So we’ve been working on a few things recently. We’ve continued our live broadcast of Bayyinah instructor Nouman Ali Khan’s Tafseer from Dallas, TX. We’ve done an event or two for Al-Madina, again, for live broadcast. In the background however, we’ve been hard at work on a few short film projects–one being Leap of Faith.

Leap of Faith is a short about Kareem, a young guy, with Acrophobia. That’s fear of heights which he must overcome. We don’t want to tell you too much about the story itself. InshaAllah we’ll be filming late March, early April and have a finished product a month or so later. We plan to shoot this movie in Stereoscopic 3D. That’s the 3D you get when you go to the theaters and wear glasses. This movie will also be viewable in 2D, but we thought it’s time for 3D. We’ll keep you updated as things move forward.
