MUMBAI: Namit Malhotra, founder of Prime Focus (and Chairman & CEO, Prime Focus World) has been nominated to the prestigious 2014-15 Board of Governors of the International 3D and Advanced Imaging Society. 38-year old Namit is the first ever Indian to make it to the Board of the global Society. Incidentally, Prime Focus World had won the Society’s annual Creative Arts award in ‘Theatrical Motion Picture -- Outstanding 2D to 3D conversion’ category for its spectacular work on Gravity in late January.

Post the unprecedented success of Gravity, 3D has regained its rightful position under the sun, and audiences and filmmakers alike are looking at 3D in a whole new way as an enabler of compelling story telling. I look forward to interesting times.”

 

Nominated as governors also were Grant Anderson of Creative Monster Productions, Paul Becker of Gener8, cinematographer Matt Blute, Chuck Comisky of Chromium Labs 3D, Doug Davis of BitSpeed, William Foote of Samsung Electronics, Ron Geller of Dolby Labs, Thierry Henkinet of Volfoni, Matt Liszt of MasterImage 3D, Ingo Nadler of 3doo, Barry Sandrew of Legend 3D, Steve Schklair of 3ality Technica, William Sherak of StereoD, Lisa Truitt of National Geographic Cinema Ventures, Corey Turner of Paramount Pictures (News - Alert), Mark Turner of Dolby Labs, and Bob Whitehill of Pixar.

 

"3D movies and premium content formats continue to be a strong part of the entertainment industry's business plan. In 2013 alone, 16 of the top 20 highest grossing worldwide box office movies were 3D feature films. And over the last 5 years, 11 3D movies have been honored with a remarkable 30 Academy Awards," stated Society President Jim Chabin. "With professional members in the US, China, Japan, Canada, the UK, and the EU, the Society is truly at the intersection where movies, television, games, and media will build their futures as premium consumer experiences. Our board brings together the world's best experts on the media of tomorrow. They help insure that we will maximize the return on all of our investments in content and digital technology," said Society President Jim Chabin.

The organization hosts professional education seminars and awards throughout the world.
