TED is a nonprofit organization devoted to Ideas Worth Spreading. Started as a four-day conference in California 26 years ago, TED has grown to support those world-changing ideas with multiple initiatives. At TED, the world’s leading thinkers and doers are asked to give the talk of their lives in 18 minutes. TEDx is a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience. TEDx GoldenGatePark was held on Wednesday October 10th, 2012 in The de Young Museum in San Francisco. TEDxGoldenGatePark is an experience with thought leaders from around the Bay Area talking about the pursuit of their passion…
The Pursuit of Passion – This one day event focuses on the fire that drives people to pursue their passion. It is about the resolve one finds within themselves to follow their heart and intuition even when faced with challenges, rejection, lack of support, or even outright failure. It is about identifying and connecting with your true passion in a sustainable and meaningful way.
And thanks to Golden Gate 3D and Area 5 who shot TEDxGoldenGatePark in stereo 3D we now have what is pretty much the world’s first TED talks in stereoscopic 3D available to be watched for free on YouTube. You can find the links for the 2D and 3D playlists containing all the talks from the event in either normal 2D format or stereoscopic 3D one. You can switch to different 3D mode from the YouTube player depending on what type of 3D display device you have.
Here is an interesting new stereo 3D video coming from Golden Gate 3D, rock climbing in 3D with a lot of first person view shots, made using GoPro’s HERO 2 cameras and GoPro’s HERO 3D system.
The siren call of adventure is ever-present for the extreme athletes who have chosen rock as their medium of self-expression. Whether sport-climbing the limestone mogotes of Vinales in Cuba, traditional climbing at 14,000 feet on The Diamond in Colorado, or climbing solo and ropeless in the High Sierra, the athletes give it their all; and Golden Gate 3D is right there to bring you the palm-sweating experience in intimate 3D! Shot with two GoPro HD Hero 2 cameras, Golden Gate 3D is capable of mobilizing into the most extreme environments.
As usual you are welcome to share your feedback after toy watch the video in 3D…
Here is a short 3D teaser trailer for Stuart and Julia’s wedding film shot in stereoscopic 3D on 5K resolution RED Epic cameras, claimed by its authors to be the first such. The Mirador Estate in beautiful Montecito near Santa Barbara provided an idyllic garden in full spring bloom, resulting in some gorgeous 3D visuals to complement the bride and groom. Shot and edited by Golden Gate 3D, the entire production was designed around creating a cinematic experience to envelop viewers in seamless 3D that provides a flowing narrative and sweeping scale to the proceedings – the ultimate in futureproof mementos of this special day, able to be enjoyed on the latest technology for decades to come.
The video has been made from the same team of people that did the spectacular Deus Ex Homine stereo 3D moco time-lapse video of an Francisco. As usual feel free to share your feedback about the video after watching it.
