In Nukufilm Studios there has been filmed the first digital stereocpical stop-animation puppet-film ever, together with Moscow Film and Photo Technology Reseach Institute NIKFI. NIKFI has come up with a special technology for making stereoscopical films and they have been awarded with Oscar in 1991.
Tallinnfilm has made stereoscopical films even before: - The Souvenir (1977, Dir. Elbert Tuganov), When the Men Sing (1979, Dir. Heino Pars) ja Apple-Roan (1981, Dir. Elbert Tuganov), that have been filmed in an old-fashioned way on the film stock. The new stereoscopical film The Scarecrow has been made digitally and there will be a large screen version IMAX made too.
There are a several ways of viewing a stereoscopical film: in a computer with special glasses, in a cinema - on a metallic screen also with special glasses. IMAX version is for special large screen.
In Estonia there is a possibility to see "Miriam's Picnik" as a stereo version in November, during the jubileum events.
For those who are interested, there is a picture you can view in stereo version even with home-made glasses - in front of one eye you should put a red filter and in front of the other - green filter. With such glasses you can see the efect, but the colours will suffer a little. Polaroid glasses give the ultimate efect.
