SMPTE will Honor James Cameron and Doug Trumbull at its Centennial Gala
The SMPTE Centennial Gala will be held on October 25-27, 2016 at the Hollywood and Highland Center (Hollywood, CA,USA). At the occasion, SMPTE will officially bestow Honorary Membership upon James Cameron in recognition of his work advancing visual effects, motion capture, and stereoscopic 3D photography, as well as his experimentation in higher frame rates (HFR).
SMPTE also will present Douglas Trumbull, who was VFX responsible in "2001: A Space Odyssey" and "Blade Runner," with the Society's most prestigious award, the Progress Medal. The award recognizes Trumbull's contributions to VFX, stereoscopic 3D, and HFR cinema, including his current work to enable stereoscopic 3D with his 120-frames-per-second Magi system.
