Spielberg Looking To The Future

Hollywood movie mogul STEVEN SPIELBERG has invented technology he calls "the future of cinema" - and he promises the new film experience will suck audiences into the heart of the action.

The SAVING PRIVATE RYAN director is working on advanced screening technology, but insists he is looking to build on the things that made cinema great in the past, rather than altering it forever.

He tells the Hollywood Reporter, "A good movie will bring you inside of itself just by the sheer brilliance of the director/writer/production staff.

"But in the future, you will physically be inside the experience, which will surround you top, bottom, on all sides.

"I've invented it, but because patent is pending, I can't discuss it right now."

We dont know the idea spielberg is talking about yet...so how to judge it??the pure idea of sucking the audience in the middle of the scene isnt new for sure...but to invent an effective way of realising it in an affordable version..is a different thing. If he came up with a working system..cool! cant wait to experience it!! spielberg is a jew..so what? didnt he entertained ALL of us very well more than just twice (and not just because hes a jew)? i think after 30 years of succesful filmmaking he knows, when a concept feels right or not...he is a master of his art...more than any of us smartasses here probably ever could be. and why should it be confusing? imagine a movie like pulp-fiction, and you just stand or sit in the 3D-filmed scene..on the backseat, when they talk about le-big mac...or in the livingroom, when they set the adrenaline injection..etc...the director is preparing the scenes and cuts for the right dramaturgy...and if the story is well told, you automatically watch the hotspot of the scene (at least at the first time)..like in other genres..you have to work out new ways to reach the right balance...but didnt they had to do it in the beginning of films or interactive computergames as well?but we have to wait and see...james cameron spoke about similar mysterious inventions..that will change cinema for ever..(everybody went crazy and assumed he finally brings us holographic cinemas or whatever) and then he came up with the unsuccessful IMAXfeature "ghosts of the abyss"...wow..and maybe einstein and other jews stole their ideas and sold it effectively...but how many christians did exactly the same thing???humans are evil in general not just the jews...think before you waste words..

This sounds like a "projecto-sphere", where the seating is on a raised platform and the movie is projected evenly upon the interior surface of the sphericly shaped theater. Think the D-Day scene in SPR, where you could look back at the landing craft, then to your right and see a G.I get blown up, then to your left and look into Tom Hanks face as he expesses the shear terror of war........ Total Immersion.

As all your evidence is on anti-semitic, your comment must be taken with a bucket of salt, never mind the pinch.Also just because you say that Einstein stole his ideas does not mean that Spielberg has.thing2k

"projecto-sphere"??? So the D-Day scene, the soldier gets blown up..... how do you know to turn to look at Tom Hanks? Without framed shots and cutting, how does the film maker guide you through their vision? Total Confusion.

In regard to Spielberg's claim of new invention:A) He didn't say anything specific about it - so we don't know anything specific about it . B) Some bright person (I know this because he could spell) here suggested maybe it's something like a "projecto-sphere" - pure supposition - sounds neat but we have no idea if that's anything like what Spielberg has in mind . C) "Enta-scope"-guy: I'm sure your innovation is wonderful, in its way, but, again we have no specific idea what Spielberg's invention is so maybe it's a bit premature to say he stole yours . D) Bii_Meister: Let's say hypothetically, as a mind experiment, that you are sitting in a seat, on a raised platform, in the middle of some kind of "surround cine" - you are facing in the direction your chair faces - what if the 360 degree moving picture rotates so that the director and writer guide you through their vision by putting in front of you that which is the most important part of the scene . Bronson's comments are mostly not in regard to Steven Spielberg's claim of a new invention, or in fact, to Spielberg himself . Bronson's page and a half is mostly about Albert Einstein ... ? In fact only 8 or nine sentences, arguably can be said to be in regard to Spielberg in any way . Bronson's post is full of racist, xenophobic, provocative thoughts which he repeats over and over again: Jews are stupid; Jews are so cunning they can control the media, society, and our minds; Jews are liars - even God tells us so . Bronson has herein sought to promote three other web sites - no doubt chock-full of lovely thoughts - the first is the homepage of William M. Branham who is certain that he is God's "Seventh Messenger to the Seventh Church Age" (which is only for gentiles); the second is a white supremacist christian site (similar to a nazi peace activist ?); the third is a mind-numbing neo-nazi sight devoted to not only denying the holocaust, but blaming the evil Jews and such who made it all up out of thin air, for the stress caused by the idea . This site offers a contest in honor of Halloween for people to collect Holocaust Survivor Stories and send them in so everyone can laugh at how impossible they are - since it never happened, it's all a big joke . In short Bronson is: off topic, being provocative, racist, xenophobic and hateful, promoting web sites that are same, all of which are against the posting rules of this site .On top of all this, most of what he had to say about Einstein and relativity is just plain wrong . It seems Bronson himself may have plagiarized the work of other, more literate, twisted, white-supremacist, hate mongers, by either typing from a script of hate leaflets or by straight cut and paste . This might explain why someone who can't spell: ceiling, classical, video, genius, or seal in the couple paragraphs of intro and ending, (all Einstein in the middle) goes on to spell far more complex words correctly, and why his post goes from the rambling / raving language of the intro and ending, to a somewhat detailed, somewhat less raving, discussion of the history of mathematical and physical work toward the theory of relativity . Or in other words: Bronson has a lot of clasical ideals that maybe he could put into a vidio that he could show to all his genuous friends, and to seel the ideal, he could show it on the cieling . But not to any Jews .For actual information on Einstein, one could Google "Einstein" or "relativity" or both; or, go get a book at a library or book seller . He's a very famous, very well-known, public person who gave lots of interviews and left many writings, and taught at University - not some mysterious character who laid back in the shadows and was P.R.-massaged up into undeserved celebrity, all the while, drooling and shambling about with shoelaces trailing .Bronson, I don't know what's wrong with you, but, let the hatred go .

Hmmmm, sounds like the clasical Jew takes credit for others inventions. Fact is the ideal explained above is already in many special movie houses whereas one would have the vidio and sound surround them from all four sides including the cieling. I don't think this is anything new with the exception that someone whom is Jewish has yet to claim it as their ideal. Einstein did it and the world believes his name to be synonymous with genius.The real fact is Einstein was an inept fool who stole his ideals and a Jewish controlled media thirsty for a Jewish hero invented him via the "'The Often-Repeated Lie=Truth." Fact is Einstein was so stupid he could not even tie his own shoes but one is to believe this inept fool could be a scientific genuous. For intance:"FIRST OF ALL, THE IDEA THAT THE SPEED OF LIGHT WAS A CONSTANT AND WAS INDEPENDENT OF THE MOTION OF ITS SOURCE WAS NOT EINSTEIN'S AT ALL, BUT WAS PROPOSED BY THE SCOTTISH SCIENTIST JAMES MAXWELL in 1878. THIS IS THE THEORY OF RELATIVITY, 13 YEARS BEFORE EINSTEIN'S PAPER! By 1904, "Lorentz transformations," the series of equations explaining relativity, were published by Lorentz. They describe the increase of mass, the shortening of length, and the time dilation of a body moving at speeds close to the velocity of light. In short, by 1904, everything in "Einstein's paper" regarding the Special Theory of Relativity had already been published. Thus, we see that the only thing original about the paper was the term 'Special Theory of Relativity.' EVERYTHING ELSE WAS PLAGIARIZED. Over the next few years, Poincaré‚ became one of the most important lecturers and writers regarding relativity, but he never, in any of his papers or speeches, mentioned Albert Einstein. Furthermore, the mathematical relationship of mass and energy was a simple deduction from the already well-known equations of Scottish physicist James Maxwell. Scientists long understood that the mathematical relationship expressed by the equation E=mc2 was the logical result of Maxwell's work, they just did not believe it. THUS, THE EXPERIMENTS OF THOMSON, KAUFMANN, AND FINALLY, AND MOST IMPORTANTLY, HASENÖRHL, CONFIRMED MAXWELL'S WORK. IT IS LUDICROUS TO BELIEVE THAT EINSTEIN DEVELOPED THIS POSTULATE, particularly in light of the fact that Einstein did not have the laboratory necessary to conduct the appropriate experiments. EINSTEIN STOLE THE MAJORITY OF HIS GENERAL RELATIVITY WORK FROM THESE TWO MEN, THE REST BEING TAKEN FROM GROSSMANN. HILBERT SUBMITTED FOR PUBLICATION, A WEEK BEFORE EINSTEIN COMPLETED HIS WORK, A PAPER WHICH CONTAINED THE CORRECT FIELD EQUATIONS, OF GENERAL RELATIVITY. There's more here: Albert Einstein-- was he a thief, a liar and a plagiarist? The Einstien Myth http://www.biblebelievers.org.au/einstein.htmhttp://www.christianseparatist.org/briefs/sb4.02.htmhttp://litek.ws/k0nsl/detox/EinsteinMyth.html So are we to believe that this man will create a movie screen that many have already seen in existance? Lastely I refer to God whom says in Titus 1:13-14 wereas the Bible tells us we must not believe anything that comes from the mouth of the Jews for what they give us is "fables", and turn from the truth. I believe that this scripture is telling us that the Jew can not be truted to tell the truth and it has been proven throughout history that Gods word is corect among all.Some may call this racist but history has proven it is not racist but pure theft on the behalf on Einstein. Now we have Speilberg telling us something some of us have already seen at work. What could he possibly do to make it better? We already have cinimas wereas we are surounded by video-audio,not many but it is in existance. The only thing that awaits this invention is for a Jew to claim it as his own.Do I have an Agenda here? Yes, I seek to prove that many things claimed to be of Jewish origin are in fact not! Are we to believe that Speilberg is now the creator of a surround cinima? Not so, they are already in existance. I believe he simply is determined to capitalize on it and have the Media which is mostly Jew controlled seel the ideal that Speilberg is therefre the creator of such.

well they need to do something, the industry is sucking. maybe if they didn't preach to us on how to live and stop trying to be so socially pius, then people wouldn't be so turned off by hollywood. they preach to us to save energy and save fuel. however, i bet there jets and multi-million dollar homes use more energy in one month than mine does in a year.
