3rd and long draw plays seen with the magic of 3D!
Pete Boone, no doubt blown away by the visual majesty of 3 dimensional owls in Legends of the Guardians, has commissioned unto the Ole Miss Athletic department to present a 90 second 3 D feature for halftime of this weekend’s Ole Miss/Auburn game. There is no indication of what the film is about, but lets all hope that Houston Nutt’s freakishly long fingers make a 3D cameo.
Kicking off the halftime entertainment will be what is believed to be a first for college football: the premiere of a 3-D video produced in-house by a university. A total of 60,000 3-D glasses will be distributed in the stadium, and the 90-second video, which has been an ongoing project for University Brand Services, will commence immediately following the second quarter. Matthew Graves, a filmmaker in Ole Miss Media and Documentary Projects, led the 3-D project and said he wanted to produce something that would captivate people in both 2-D and 3-D.
60,000 3D glasses seems like a bit of overkill fo 90 seconds of payoff until you realize that they will also come with a special pair of 3D Croakies…so its a bargain, really…a very fratty bargain.
