You might recognize the name Douglas Trumbull, even if you aren't sure from where. He's probably most famous for his work on the excellent special effects in the sci-fi classic, 2001: A Space Odyssey. But he's also directed some movies himself since then, like Silent Running. Recently, though, his career has been in silent running - he hasn't directed a movie since 1983's Brainstorm. Now, despite that, he's being trusted with the latest in Hollywood's mind-blowing technology: higher frame rates. Here's Trumbull on the best invention since Edison filmed a man on a horse:
“Higher frame rates create a sense of realism. We are now at a time when we can have any film texture we want. But it’s not an either/or situation.”

This higher frame rate process has been advocated by James Cameron as a solution to the headaches and nausea that sometimes accompany a 3D movie. No details on plot or anything, but let's face it - you're coming for the higher frame rates, not the story or characters. (The Hollywood Reporter)
