  • Showscan

    A film process whereby 65mm film is photographed at 60 frames per second, and projected using 70mm prints at the same rate. The result is unsurpassed image clarity and realism made possible by the tremendous reduction of blurring, and the projection of each frame only once, instead of twice as in 35mm.

    Laboratory tests were performed whereby viewers were monitored during screenings with electromyogram, electroencephalogram, galvanic skin response, and electrocardiogram. These viewers were shown identical films shot and projected at 24, 36, 48, 60, 66, and 72 fps. The results showed conclusively that the high frame rate of 60 resulted in profoundly increased visual stimulation in viewers.

    Often projected onto screens at over 30 foot lamberts of brightness, viewers reported a profound sense that the screen was a window onto reality. The process failed as a business due to an inability to compete with the market dominance of IMAX.

  • Secrets of the Luxor Pyramid - Trilogy

    Following the tremendous success of BACK TO THE FUTURE – THE RIDE, Trumbull’s new company Berkshire Motion Picture was awarded a contract for three attractions at the Luxor Hotel in Las Vegas. Exploring a radical new concept in theme park attractions, Trumbull devised a trilogy of attractions that comprised the first, second, and third act of a complete drama.

    The first act was a simulator ride with a revolutionary motion base as well as 48 frame per second photography and projection onto a hemispheric screen with high gain and low cross-reflectance.

    The second act was a seemingly “live” late night television talk show, featuring the Showscan process rear projected into a full-scale set – resulting in the audience believing that they were seeing a live show.

    The third act was the Theatre of the Future, featuring a vertical screen “Time Machine” theme, and explored complex speed ramping of the 48 frame per second VistaVision film.

    Photographic effects work included combined live action, miniature, and CGI all composited at 6K resolution. Photographic effects were headed by Joel Hynek and Jeff Kleiser, and the trilogy was co-directed by Douglas Trumbull and Arish Fyzee. Production design was by Robert U. Taylor.
