Subject: [SCREEN-L] Saving Private Ryan's blood on the camera technique
To: [log in to unmask]

> Does anyone know of instances prior to Saving Private Ryan where

> Following this enquiry, does anyone know of any 3D films that have 
> used the
> same effect. Step Up 3D allows water to remain on the lens but I 
> haven'tseen this in any other previous stereoscopic films.
