I worked on PIRANHA 3D
Remember how I said that I was “drowning” in work and that was a pun and you didn’t know why but I’d tell you?
Yeah. I worked on a movie that involves water and drowning, and a lot of mean little CG fish.
Anyway, I’m not saying you should or shouldn’t go see PIRANHA this weekend. What I will say is that this film actually took its time with the conversion. Whereas most films get finished and then go “We can charge how much for 3D tickets?!” and turn around a shit-tastic “3D” version in six weeks (I’m looking at you, everything), they knew from the word go that PIRANHA was going to do a conversion and they gave it the time you need to do it right. Nine months, on this one. I was there for seven.
I am very proud of the quality of the conversion that was done on this film. I think it is genuinely the best, cleanest 3D conversion to date. The quality of the film we did the conversion on is…not Shakespeare. Let’s leave it at that.
Like I said, I’m not promoting the flick per se. Don’t make plans to see it just on my account. But, if you were already going to see it, I think this one might be worth the 3D tax. It’s big and silly and gimmicky — quite honestly, a movie like PIRANHA is what this 3D thing is really good for. And you might spot my name in the credits!
