Vol. 1 & 2 - Continuous-wave laser & Pulsed laser holographic art

Produced and Directed by Al Razutis with the support of the Shearwater Foundation

A two part documentary on holographic art produced by continuous wave laser (Volume 1) and art produced by pulsed laser (Volume 2) showing the pioneering efforts, labs and exhibitions of the work of 12 artists in the 1980's-90's on the west-coast of N. America.

OVERVIEWS:

VOLUMES 1 & 2 - shot by Al Razutis in Standard NTSC 2D tape formats:

This is the original grouping of artists and their labs and works on exhibition which was a documentary funded in part by the Shearwater Foundation (USA). Volume One is 'continuous wave' holography and holographic at, and Volume Two is 'pulsed laser' hologrpahy and holographic art conducted on the west-coast of North America in the 1980;s when this project was done.

This ongoing video documentary project (in 2D and stereoscopic 3D) on holographic artists and arts of the West-Coast US and Canada features interviews, lab and exhibition documentation of their work. These artists-holographers were pivotal in the development of holographic art and commerce on the west-coast of the U.S. and Canada during the 80's and 90's.

Vol. 4 - West-Coast Artists in stereoscopic 3D

Ongoing 3D Video documentary on west-coast U.S., Canadian holographic artists

Produced and Directed by Al Razutis

Volume 4 continues the project in two important aspects: the continuing works of Al Razutis, the last remaining practicing west-coast Canadian holographer and the guy who brought holographic art to Canada in the first place,   plus the new research and documentation of the Sharon McCormack Collection and Archives.   In this stereoscopic 3D volume the works of Al Razutis and Sharon McCormack, Multiplex Company, SF School of Holography come to life in spatial 3D forms and videos!

This volume will endeavor to expand on works being conducted today by other artists and display artisans is they are located and available.
