"?We have a special reel in the Electronic Theater of recent game technology,? says Debevec. ?It?s based on jury selections that Habib Zagarpour composed into a montage. It will be eye-opening for a lot of people.? Zagarpour, one of the jurors, is an art director at Electronic Arts.
Debevec divided the Animation Theater films into seven reels, seven themes, which play continuously in two 400-seat theaters, each with 20-foot screens. ?We have Sony XSRD projectors,? he says. ?These are 4K resolution projectors and one of our reels has five films in 4K resolution ? 4,096 by 2,160 resolution. If you want to try out 4K, my recommendation is to sit close to the screen. You?ll be bathed in pixels.?
Also, look for what Debevec calls a ?little surprise? at the end of the 4K reel, a 14-minute live action piece with a visual effect. With only 95 percent certainty that he?ll get the piece for the show, he?s unwilling to reveal the name of the filmmaker or the camera used to capture the action quite yet. If it?s there, we can promise you won?t want to miss it. "
