Dolby's Tim Partridge on Digital 3-D Moviemaking

I'm a little late in posting this video, shot back in October... but in it, Dolby EVP Tim Partridge lays out his vision for how digital 3-D moviemaking will take over the world.

Partridge says that in the early days of Dolby's audio noise reduction (and later, Dolby's digital sound), industry insiders predicted that the new technology would only be used for big action pictures. These days, 3-D is regarded as something for action pictures and cartoons, but Partridge says that since humans see in 3-D, it's natural for all movies to have that third dimension. (Here's more on Dolby's 3-D offering.)
