Pogo Welcomes Brian May
Brian May at Pogo
Earlier this year, we were delighted to greet Dr. Brian May to Pogo Films’ offices. Brian has always been a very keen collector and historian of stereographic images and we wanted him to see our innovative and entertaining series; ”Time Traveller Guides 3D”. Constructed from cleaned and restored nineteenth and twentieth century Stereographs (using our newly established treatment process) the series brings these original stereographic images to life in a very vivid and modern light.
Brian settled in and was treated to our “Gettysburg” episode from the series. A series of images and story that are very close to his heart and which, happily, we had brought to life in a fascinating way with contemporary voice-over and music and effects. It is a moving film, some of the content reflects the brutal nature of the conflict, but Brian liked to be able to see into these soldiers lives and see them in 3D, entering into their world.
Brian’s love of stereography is broad and has recently included the bringing back to life of “The Diabeleries” – The 19th centuries world of fascination with Death and ghoulishness! I cannot explain it here, but please read Brian’s blog

Before Brian headed home he produced his 3D camera and snatched a shot of the Pogo crew and his good self. A master-piece and also present, though hiding, 3D film maker, Darren Bender
. This is shown in anaglyph above.
A great visit but guess what? Phil (ed) who organised the whole visit, was sick at home in bed! But we hope to show Brian the completed TV series soon and get another opportunity to talk stereo. Till then…
