Apparently directors need to send letters to projectionists to get them to display their films properly..
Michael Bay has written one such letter in which he addresses the issue of 3D films having their brightness halved.
Those who have experience a 3D film knows the annoyance of the film’s image brightness dropping, due to the polarized glasses. Sometimes in dark scenes it is a struggle to distinguish figures. To tackle this problem Michael Bay has focused on the film’s brightness in post by specially grading the brightness levels to twice their standard level.
I just think, why hasn’t someone done this sooner!
