Think you can handle True Blood in 3-D, Truebies? Well, according to Alan Ball, you may get a chance to test yourself soon enough. The Los Angeles Times exposed yesterday that True Blood’s creator and director has revealed that they shot a season 4 episode in 3-D, “just to take a look at it.” He went on to say:
“HBO asked us to do one. It was pretty cool. I don’t think it’s going to air. We just did it as an experiment, because I don’t know if they’re going to want to take the show 3-D at some point, maybe like a season premiere or a season finale or something. I would be surprised if — depending on how long the show lasts — that doesn’t happen at some point, especially if 3-D technology gets beyond having to wear the glasses.”
Ball didn’t reveal any details as to which episode it was, but he did indicate the following:
“It was basically a scene that’s in the show anyway, so they just also shot it with 3-D cameras. They sort of blocked it so it would lend itself to that. There was a lot of stuff in the foreground, stuff in the background, that kind of thing. I really don’t believe it was tremendously difficult. If I can remember correctly I believe that the director and the cinematographer did a little seminar with the 3-D camera people before we did it, and they sort of said this is what works best.”
