Reception/Screening/Q&A with U2 3D producer Peter Shapiro
The first-ever live-action digital 3-D film, U2 3D is a unique cinematic experience that places viewers within the pulsing energy of a stadium concert given by the world’s most popular band. Marrying innovative digital 3-D imagery and multi-channel surround sound with the excitement of a live U2 concert – shot in South America during the final leg of their “Vertigo” tour – it creates an immersive theatrical experience unlike any 3-D or concert film that has come before.
This rare private screening of U2 3D – which opened theatrically worldwide in January, 2008 through National Geographic Entertainment – is only shown in cinemas equipped with Digital 3-D or IMAX® 3-D projection systems.
Please join the Producers Guild of America New Media Council East and 3ality Digital Productions for this special screening, with opening remarks from Marc Scarpa, PGA New Media Council East founder.
