Board officers are Sony 3D Technology center’s Buzz Hays, chairman; DreamWorks Animation’s Jim Mainard, vice chair; and Oculus3D’s Lenny Lipton, first vice chair.

“After a century of effort, 3D movies are finally here,” Lipton said. “The technology now allows moving images to enjoy a creative renaissance as filmmakers and the industry explore the potentials of this long-sought-after means of creative expression.”

Org’s kudos, the I3DS Awards, are set for the Mann Chinese Theater in Hollywood on Feb. 23. Eleven awards categories include live-action feature, animation feature, stereography, vfx and marketing 3D content. Event will be shown in 3D utilizing Xpand’s active shutter glasses and systems.

“This is the beginning of a lasting and appropriate recognition of 3D professionals,” said org prexy Jim Chabin.
