Mad Max 4: Fury Road will No Longer be Filmed in 3D

George Miller's "Mad Max: Fury Road," which was delayed for almost 24 months due to innapropriate weather conditions (Australian deserts blossomed with flowers instead of being a barren wasteland... that would be an odd Mad Max), will no longer be shooting in 3D as originally planned.

The 3D camera cut is probably to scale down on the budget and speed up filming time. Instead of shooting with 3D cameras, 'Fury Road,' will instead now employ a blend of Alexa digital cameras with Canon and Olympus DSLRs, and then be converted to 3D in post-production. The film will shoot in digital 2D and then post-convert into 3D, which should be a problem. While post-conversion 3D has been mocked, ("Clash Of The Titans" being one of the worst), it's become an imperceptible problem of the past. Marvel's "The Avengers" was not shot in 3D, but was shot in 2D and then converted, and looked awesome.

“We are doing 3D on Fury Road – we are shooting with real 3D cameras,” Miller said in July of 2010. “Seven years ago we were going to shoot in 3D but the technology in cinemas wasn’t geared for it then but I always loved 3D or stereo.” There was doubt that the 3D cameras developed specifically for the film could "withstand the tough desert conditions and extensive stunt work the film requires." After all, a lot of cars are going to be crashed and many cameras will see their deaths.
