Converting XYZ to Anaglyph
Another Language Performing Arts Company is currently converting the 3D video portion of XYZ from active 3D stereoscopy to red/cyan anaglyph stereoscopy. This conversion will make the 3D XYZ experience available to more viewers with the use of widely available red/cyan glasses. This will allow the company to stream XYZ from the Another Language website or provide screenings at many other venues.
The conversion process involves, re-rendering all the animation for the 12-minute video, because the interaxial separation (the distance between the right and left virtual cameras) needs to be reset, placing the cameras much closer together. Since another pass through the render process is required, it will be necessary to re-edit the final stereographic scenes together. Once this is complete, the left and right videos will be processed in Adobe After Effects in order to produce the final red/cyan anaglyphic video. The resulting video can then be screened on any standard HD TV or video display.
Another Language will continue to research the stereographic video process to find the best methods that will present the Company's 3D work in the highest quality. The next showing of XYZ will be for 12 Minutes Max produced by the Dunce School for the Arts on June 23rd at 2pm.

On Sunday, June 23rd at 2:00pm, Another Language Performing Arts Company will participate in 12 Minutes Max, showing an anaglyph (red/cyan) version of XYZ at Dunce School for the Arts. Audience members will wear the "really cool" red and cyan paper glasses. These glasses will be a take home gift for the attendees.
Dunce School for the Arts is a broadband art house founded by Gretchen Reynolds and Alexandra Karl. It is located in Sugar House (Utah) at the Rockwood Studios, #5 1064 E. 2100 S. 12 Minutes Max showcases short experimental pieces and works-in-progress across disciplines with a twelve minute maximum performance time. It takes place on the third Sunday, every other month. Admission is FREE with concessions available and donations are gratefully accepted. Everyone is welcome, but please no children under 10.
DUNCE believes everyone has something unique and interesting to say. Offering a wide range of classes and workshops for adults, they help students distill an artistic vision and develop their own visual language. Classes blend time-honored traditions with contemporary practices.
DUNCE also believes that art does not happen in a vacuum, but in concert with other practitioners in the field. These may hail from foreign lands, distant time periods or unfamiliar mindsets. Special events at DUNCE are designed to inspire individuals while engaging Salt Lake's art community.

Ellen Pearlman Self-Portrait
Ellen Pearlman - Co-Organizer, Director and Curator of the Volumetric Society of New York City contacted Another Language Directors Elizabeth and Jimmy Miklavcic, after hearing about the XYZ (2013) stereoscopic project through a blog post on the DTTV Social Network founded by Marlon Barrios Solano. The Volumetric Society of NYC is organized by Ellen Pearlman and Sean Kean.
Comprised of an eclectic group of almost one thousand New York City based innovators, they explore the art and science of the new world of natural user interface (NUI) between body, brain, and spatially aware computing for the physical world. The Volumetric Society has on going meet ups in various locations throughout New York to exchange ideas, demo projects, and expose members to the volumetric future through devices such as Kinect, Emotive/MindWave, volumetric 3D displays, cameras and telematic interfaces. Everyone is welcome - from advanced hardware hackers to those who would like to learn what can be done with these new technologies in the arts, sciences, healthcare, gaming, academia, and business venture opportunities.
The Volumetric Society also offers low cost classes in high-end technology partnering with Devotion Gallery in Williamsburg, Brooklyn and the IMC Labs in Chelsea, Manhattan. In the coming month they will be offering members a social networking platform through TenLegs, and a Kinect Lab for collaborations through CultureHub/LaMaMa Seoul Arts.

the National Endowment for the Arts.

"Another Language Performing Arts Company thanks the voters of Salt Lake County for their support of the Zoo, Arts & Parks program. One-tenth of one percent of the Salt Lake County sales tax goes to support local cultural, botanical, and zoological organizations. This funding has not only stabilized many of Salt Lake's cultural organizations, but has also funded the construction of new recreational facilities, and improved walking trails. ZAP funding helps to provide "free" days, free concerts, reduced ticket prices for students, and provide in-school programs for children in grades kindergarten through twelfth grade."
