Pioneering HD cinematographer B. Sean Fairburn, SOC is working on ways to make 3D cinematography possible for all kinds of difficult and dangerous activities. Among his film credits so far are Windtalkers, Once Upon a Time in Mexico, Expendables and The Mechanic. His TV credits include Super Bowl XXXVIII, Star Trek Enterprise, House MD, American Dreams, and the documentary Inside the Space Station.

As a U.S. Marine, Sean shot the beginning of Operation Iraq Freedom by mounting an HD camera on the back of a Humvee and accompanying U.S. Marines from the breach into Iraq to the streets of Baghdad. Looking for his next challenge after that, Sean turned to 3D cinematography, and has come up with some ways to work that are faster, cheaper, and far more flexible than other approaches to date.

No matter how you feel about stereoscopic 3D, you're going to be exhilarated and inspired by the ongoing innovation of one of the industry's most creative cinematographers.
