Quote:
Peter Jackson,best known for directing The Lord of the Rings trilogy, has created a new film using original footage from Imperial War Museums’ extensive archive, much of it previously unseen, alongside BBC and IWM interviews with servicemen who fought in the conflict. Footage has been colourised, converted to 3D and transformed with modern production techniques to present never before seen detail.



I hadn't heard about this until today, sadly my local Picture House is showing it Sunday afternoon, but it's sold out.

Mark Kermode talking to Peter Jackson about it is interesting as well

I believe I heard they are sending a copy to every secondary school in the country.

The only picture I've ever seen of my paternal grandfather (dead long before I was born) was him standing by the lorry he drove in WW1.

Its amazing technology to create moving colour like that.

I have seen old silent B&W moving pictures with color added to each frame still, a long and difficult process, but does not compare to this.

Will watch this on the BBC.

Went to see this on Tuesday night - was in 3D - fantastic work done and a good Q&A session afterwards and it showed how much the film meant to him.

However would have preferred to see it in 2D.

I'v not seen 3D since the si-fi film 'Avatar', as I get a headache with it as well, plus will not pay for over rated 3D prices compared to 2D.

I have not checked the ratio of 3D films over 2D films for this year, but in my local cinema 3D is no longer that popular.
