Filming of "Svalbard - Arctic Seasons"
By Thomas Hauerslev
We chose 65mm because the film is going to be shown on a big curved screen, covering more than 100' angle from the audiences point of view. No smaller format could give the same feeling of being present in an arctic environment.

John Steven Lashers' Kinopanorama
John Steven Lasher developed the idea for a short promotional travel-related film about Australia, New South Wales and Sydney, host city of the 2000 Olympics, which would be shot in the three-strip Cinerama process, and offered the film to Pictureville on an exclusive basis
"Bounty" credits
The 3-strip project has been retitled from "Ol' Three-Eyes is back" to "H.M.A.V. Bounty". Length of final film is estimated at 10 minutes actual footage, plus 3 minutes film prologue (centre panel only), film music overture (2'30"), end credits (3') and exit music under one minute. Roughly 19 minutes of Kinopanorama film. Screenplay is structured around a cruise aboard The Bounty. Additional footage will be of Australian beaches, a cricket match between Australia and England.
Kinopanorama Camera
Kinopanorama, the Russian system of panoramic cinematography, whereby specially designed three-lens optics recreate the peripheral range of human vision, was developed in the Soviet Union between 1956 and 1957 by scientists at N.I.K.F.I. (All Union Scientific Research Institute of Motion-Picture Photography) under the supervision of Evsei Mikhailovich Goldovskii (1903-1971), the eminent Soviet scientist and inventor.

"Oklahoma!" Printing Operation in the Todd-AO Mark III Printer
By Dr. Walter P. Siegmund
The American Optical Company has the responsibility of printing the release prints of the motion picture "Oklahoma!". In order that this printing may have the closest supervision, it is planned that, at least for the initial stages, this printing will be done in the Research Center in Southbridge.

Description of Todd-AO Mark III Printer Principle
By Dr. Walter P. Siegmund
The problem of obtaining any given overall frame keystone correction (K-correction) along with any given droop while at the same time matching the "intrinsic" printer keystone requires the control of several factors in the printing system. The focal length of the printer lens and the bridge angle determine the intrinsic keystone. The curvature of field of the printer lens and the bridge angle determine the droop.
The Samuel Goldwyn Co 1982 re-release of "Oklahoma!"
The Samuel Goldwyn Co
The re-release, to begin in November, will mark the first time "Oklahoma!" has been shown in its original form since its initial release. First dates will be in Oklahoma City, to coincide with the 75th anniversary of the state of Oklahoma, and in Los Angeles. Openings will follow in New York, San Francisco, Seattle and other key cities.
How Todd-AO Began
By Brian O'Brien, Jr.
My father was a college professor, uninterested in show business, and had never heard of Mike Todd, so when Mike called him late one night saying he wanted a meeting, my dad was naturally cautious.
Distortion Correcting Printing Process
By Grant Lobban
The process was originally designed to eliminate keystone distortion, distortion resulting from using a deeply curved screen, plus correcting the distortion arising from use of the extremely wide-angle lenses
