Legend Films

Legend Films, a San Diego-based company, was founded in August 2001. The company specializes in the conversion of feature films, both new release and catalog titles, and commercials from their native 2D format into 3-D film format utilizing proprietary technology and software . The company started business providing restoration and colorization of classic black-and-white films for DVD, HDTV and theatrical release. However, with the refocusing of the company efforts to the 3D conversion business, the company officially changed names to Legend3D, Inc. in the summer of 2010.

Legend3D has performed 3D conversion on a number of high-profile projects including feature film work for Disney, DreamWorks Animation, Warner Bros., and Sony Imageworks, as well as commercial work for HP, Fanta, New Balance, and M&M/Mars, television work on television show "Chuck" and for MTV and special feature work for the Michael Jackson "This is it" tour.

Legend3D also continues to support its two legacy businesses. The first, Legend Films Home Entertainment Distribution, produces and distributes DVDs of films and video content that have been colorized from their original black-and-white format. The second, RiffTrax, is an innovative web 2.0 business from the stars of Mystery Science Theater 3000, that offers humorous audio commentaries. The Rifftrax are available in MP3 files for blockbuster movies, and DVDs for titles in the Legend Films library.

Famous quotes containing the words films and/or legend:

    Television does not dominate or insist, as movies do. It is not sensational, but taken for granted. Insistence would destroy it, for its message is so dire that it relies on being the background drone that counters silence. For most of us, it is something turned on and off as we would the light. It is a service, not a luxury or a thing of choice.
    David Thomson, U.S. film historian. America in the Dark: The Impact of Hollywood Films on American Culture, ch. 8, William Morrow (1977)

    We should burn all libraries and allow to remain only that which everyone knows by heart. A beautiful age of the legend would then begin.
    Hugo Ball (1886–1927)
