Vatican Museums in 3D

About six million people visit the Vatican museums every year. For those who can't make the trip, now there's a 3D experience where viewers can see it all up close and personal.  COSETTA LAGANI Vatican Museums 3D, Producer  "With this 3D footage you feel like you're actually visiting the museum. It's as if you're reaching out and touching the works or art. It seems like you're part of the frescoes, in  all their dimensions.â?  Making this happen wasn't easy. It was the first time Ultra HD/3D cameras were allowed to film inside the Vatican Museums and the Sistine Chapel. Day in and day out, a team of 40 Italian crew members, were given unlimited access to priceless pieces of art. In essence, it's an attempt to make a masterpiece out of a masterpiece.  COSETTA LAGANI Vatican Museums 3D, Producer "Our team covered the Vatican's Raphael rooms. We also include works by Giotto and Caravaggio. There's also some pieces from the Museum of Modern Art, done by Dali and Van Gogh.â?  After four months of post-production, a one hour documentary will hit international big screens starting December 10th. More than 500 theaters will show the film, through the SpectiCast Network and the Fathom Event's Digital Broadcast Network.  COSETTA LAGANI Vatican Museums 3D, Producer "The audience will never forget what it sees, because the images include so much detail. The narration that accompanies the film is also very original. It describes the history of Laocoonte, the Torso of Belvedere and of course the Sistine Chapel. You can't forget it.â?  A documentary that triggers intrigue and inspiration, based on some of the most powerful works of art, ever produced by mankind.   KLH  MG VM -PR Up: MPI #Vatican
