Help us Restore "September Storm 3D", a lost 3D movie

We need your help to SAVE SEPTEMBER STORM!

SEPTEMBER STORM is considered one of the "lost" 3D features of the golden age of 3D stereoscopic cinema. Shot in 1959, it was the last of the 3D movies to be filmed in the 1950s, and is most notable for being filmed in Stereo-Vision (utilizing the Natural Vision 3D camera rig) and in CinemaScope. SEPTEMBER STORM hasn't been seen in it's intended 3D and widescreen format since it's initial theatrical release in 1960, and the surviving film elements are deteriorating. If a digital restoration of the stereoscopic anamorphic version isn't done soon, it is at risk of being lost forever. Your donation to this Kickstarter campaign will help save this important motion picture so that it can be seen by future generations of movie fans.

Stereorealist 3D Camera Nostalgy

You may now browse a collection of over 300 Stereorealist 3D camera advertisements and promotional material uploaded by Susan Pinsky and David Starkman on Flickr. These images were meant to be part of a book that was in the works since 1981, but never published. Time passed and they now feel it's just too interesting  to pass up sharing, so feel free to enjoy!

Celebrating 100 Years of 3D Cinema

The first documented exhibition of a stereoscopic 3D motion picture took place on June 10, 1915 at the Astor Theatre in New York. The historic footage does not survive.  But nearly 35 years ago, the 3-D Film Archive began our effort to locate, save and restore lost 3D films. Over the past three decades, many rare stereoscopic treasures dating back to 1922 have been located and preserved by the 3D Film Archive. The 3-D RARITIES Blu-ray was released June 16, 2015 by Flicker Alley.

The ALSCC Camera Snaped 3D Pictures of the Moon in 1969

Pictures from the stereoscopic ALSCC ( Apollo Lunar Surface Closeup Camera) are less known than those shot by the astronauts with their Hasselblad cameras. The ALSCC is an odd device resembling a cane stuck to an oversized coffee dispenser.  To use the ALSCC, an astronaut simply plopped it down over an area of interest and pulled the trigger. A small flash fired, capturing two, offset images measuring nine square inches each. Combined in a single anaglyph, these images of the moon soil become a 3D picture visible with red/cyan glasses.
