Scott talks with his guest Phil "Captian 3D" McNally a stereoscopic supervisor at Dreamworks Animation, about the wonderful world of 3D.
Guests: Phil McNally
Phil "Captain 3D" McNally most recently served as Stereoscopic Supervisor on DreamWorks Animation’s Kung Fu Panda 2. Prior to Kung Fu Panda 2, he worked in the same capacity on Megamind, Shrek Forever After, How to Train Your Dragon, and DreamWorks Animation’s first stereoscopic 3D film Monsters vs. Aliens.
Hailed as the expert on all things 3D, McNally was introduced to stereoscopic photography in 1990 while studying at the Royal College of Art in London. This hobby soon became his passion and has developed over the years through a range of creative projects, from Viewmaster promotional reels to gallery installations.
In 2001, McNally moved to California to work as an animator at Industrial Light & Magic after the success of his short animated film Pump-Action. His stereoscopic experience was rewarded when Disney tasked ILM with converting Chicken Little into a 3D release in 2005. McNally also supervised the stereoscopic work on Disney’s Meet the Robinsons and advised on The Nightmare Before Christmas conversion to 3D.
