In 2013 Demetri is proud to be involved with the upcoming “47 Ronin 3D” for Universal Pictures and  “The Young and Prodigious T.S. Spivet” which marks a first foray in 3D filmmaking by director Jean-Pierre Jeunet (Amelie).

Demetri was introduced to native 3D capture through his work on the Resident Evil 3D films and then continued work in Los Angeles with Cameron Pace Group. Demetri has also worked on live sporting events for ESPN 3D and shot the stereo footage for the official I.O.C. film of The 2010 Vancouver Winter Olympics.

Masterclass with Demetri Portelli

Demetri Portelli has been at the heart of some of the greatest 3D filmmaking achievements of recent years, from Martin Scorsese’s Hugo to the 2010 Vancouver Winter Olympic Games. Not only has 3D revolutionized the way that audiences watch film, but also how artists and technicians create and collaborate. This one hour master class will discuss the challenges of expanding the director-cinematographer collaboration to incorporate the stereographer. How has such a charged creative relationship adapted to becoming a trio? Central to the discussion will be Portelli’s collaboration with Jean-Pierre Jeunet on the French director’s forthcoming 3D debut The Young and Prodigious T.S. Spivet.
