in a Whole New Way
at the California Science Center
Deep Sea 3D to make a big splash on March 3, 2006
Newest IMAX? 3D Underwater Film Narrated by Johnny Depp and Kate
Los Angeles – Dive
in beginning March 3, 2006, when Deep Sea 3D debuts
at the California Science Center IMAX Theater. Through the
magic of IMAX 3D technology, audiences will be transported
below the ocean surface to swim with some of the planet’s
most unique, dangerous and colorful creatures, from the unusual
Wolf Eel to the Giant Pacific Octopus.
Deep Sea 3D brings moviegoers face to face with these
underwater inhabitants to witness their peculiar and amazing
behavior as they rely on one another for survival. It is directed
by world-renowned underwater cinematographer, Howard Hall,
produced by Toni Myers and Michele Hall, executive produced
by Graeme Ferguson and narrated by Johnny Depp and Kate Winslet,
with an original score by Danny Elfman.
I put on the IMAX 3D glasses to watch Deep
Sea 3D it was like putting on my dive mask,” explains
director Howard Hall. “IMAX 3D provides such an immersive
experience that you're able to get up close to the creatures
much like I did shooting the film, but without getting wet."
“Our goal is really to take you on a magical journey
underwater to places that most of us have never been”,
comments producer Toni Myers. “Even with a large number
of people who do scuba dive, lots of them have never met these
characters or seen how they interact with other animals. Deep
Sea 3D includes moments that Howard himself has never
filmed before, even in his long and varied career in undersea
photography. These creatures are scary, beautiful, funny—it’s
such a vivid illustration of the astonishing array of the diversity
Deep Sea 3D reunites the dynamic filmmaking team
that produced the very first IMAX 3D underwater film Into
the Deep 3D, which still delights IMAX audiences to this
day. This breakthrough in filmmaking led Howard Hall and his
crew to push the envelope once again, diving in multiple locations
to profile animals that have never been seen in IMAX 3D before.
