Graeme Ferguson has been enjoying 3D films for 60 years, starting with Norman McLaren’sAround Is Around (1953). Later he was a participant in the development of IMAX Corporation’s film-based 3D projection systems, including IMAX 3D and IMAX Solido, as well as the Solido and 30 perf cameras.  His team’s IMAX 3D films have done boffo box office.  Ferguson will provide some observations, and will hazard a prediction or two about the future of 3D.
