Movies were original black and white. Then sound was added and then colour.
In the 1950s, smell o vision and 3D were short lived fads.
better than movies with the poorly done effects for the most part.. .seriously I am flashing on SCTV’s horror monster theatre of waving things closer to the camera.
Anyway, I have a lot of these because of comic books a way better 3D medium than movies.
more recent 3 d movies don’t rely on the blue red, but a polarizing effect. these Buddy Holly looking ones were the second batch when they ran out of the harry potter ones for the last movie or the second to last. part 1 of the last I suppose..
anyway, I tried out the new Sony 3D for home system and could barely stand the resolution and colour for more than a few seconds. Migraines prevent use.
but more than that, it makes me wonder
when I was a kid in the 1970s, we had a black and white tv set
so I grew up with the ability to convert in my head between the two, I fairly accurately convert the grey tones to colour. or I used to, not having watched much black and white
how we see depends a lot on what we are exposed to
and what we understand
depends on how it’s contextualized
