This film examines the process of holography, types of holograms, and the uses of the hologram for artistic and scientific purposes, as demonstrated by Tung H. Jeong, PhD, Lake Forest College.
About the film, director Tom Smith writes: “Nobel Prize winner Dennis Gabor, holography’s inventor, saw the film after it was made and said it was the best film on the subject that he had seen. It is such a visual subject it made for a good film. I knew the 3-D quality could only be appreciated if I moved the camera so I moved it. Right after it came out, I got a call from someone at Universal Film wondering how I achieved the 3-D in 16mm. I explained all I did was move the camera. We had a very small crew on that film. I was the cinematographer, writer and director.”
