Matthew Bristowe
Topic: The Art and Mechanics of Stereo Conversion

Matt BristoweMatthew is the Head of Production, View-D™ at Prime Focus Film. He began his production career at MPC as a DI Producer where he was instrumental in establishing the new department, and setting up the first DI pipelines and helping to grow the division. During this time, he worked on major feature film projects including 28 Days Later, Shaun of the Dead, Troy and 10,000BC. Matthew’s dedication and expert knowledge of issues both creative and technical, led him to assume the role of Senior DI Producer when MPC was taken over by Technicolor in 2009. His essential input to feature films such as Danny Boyle’s Slumdog Millionaire, Guy Ritchie’s Sherlock Holmes and Wes Anderson’s Fantastic Mr. Fox, reaffirmed his status as one of London’s foremost DI producers.

Since joining Prime Focus as executive producer for View-D™ - Prime Focus’ proprietary system for the conversion of 2D moving images to stereo 3D images - Matthew has overseen the stereoscopic conversion of a number of high-profile films including The Chronicles of Narnia: The Voyage of the Dawn Treader and Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 1 and Part 2. After the launch of Prime Focus’ Film division, Matthew has become Head of Production, orchestrating the development and recruitment for the growing 3D division, establishing Prime Focus Film London as a centre of excellence for all matters stereoscopic. He is also leading the London facility for the 2D to 3D conversion of Lucasfilm’s Star Wars: Episode I: The Phantom Menace
