Legendary Filmmaker and Attraction Designer Douglas Trumbull to Receive Lifetime Achievement Award from IMERSA

 

 

IMERSA 2018 Summit attendees will be treated to a special appearance by filmmaker and visual effects pioneer Douglas Trumbull, who will be receiving an IMERSA Lifetime Achievement award. Trumbull first came to attention in the with his work on 2001: A Space Odyssey, Close Encounters of the Third Kind, Star Trek: The Motion Picture, Blade Runner, and Brainstorm. His attraction credits include the Showscan high speed film process, Back to the Future: The Ride, Secrets of the Luxor Pyramid, and the IMAX Ridefilm motion simulator.

He continues to explore the same immersive world through Magi, his advanced capture and display system. It uses images displayed in 3D, 4K resolution at 120 frames per second. With this system, he hopes to remake the movie magic so many people experienced early in the Cinerama days, when content was projected across 100-foot curved screens.

The Summit will be held at the Center of Science and Industry (COSI) in Columbus, OH, February 24 – 27, 2018.
