Theatrical documentary CHARLIE VICTOR ROMEO brought to the screen with cutting-edge stereoscopic 3D technology.

CHARLIE VICTOR ROMEO (CVR) is a live performance documentary derived entirely from the "Black Box" transcripts of six major real-life airline emergencies. Allowing the audience into the tension-filled cockpits of actual flights in distress, CVR is a fascinating portrait of the psychology of crisis and a testament  to the ability to live to the last second. What is going on behind that door in the front of the airplane?  Who are these people we trust our lives to?  What do they really do when things go horribly wrong?

Over the past 12 years there have been numerous discussions and investigations into how CVR might be brought to a larger audience through another medium. In most cases the conclusion has been that although other artists want to utilize our "brand" they have no interest in preserving the artistic vision that makes it the dynamic presentation that it is. The power of our production is the intimate communication of the intensity and emotion of these emergencies, communicated between our cast  and the audience. That's the energy of live performance, of theater. How do we take that closeness, that connection, and carry it over to the cinema?

When we saw our technology partners’ demonstration of their stereoscopic 3D camera technology, designed specifically for the recording of live performance, we were amazed and completely hooked. To have an opportunity to place an audience in the best seat in the theater serves one of the requirements we needed to make the Charlie Victor Romeo Film.

We have been granted a residency at 3LD Arts & Technology Center (3ldnyc.org,) and have scheduled a series of live performances in August, as well as an extended theatrical run in October. We will now be able to bring  this groundbreaking and powerful international phenomenon to the big screen allowing moviegoers the same thrilling, devastating and uplifting experience live theater audiences have experienced for years.  A performance documentary film intended to bring CVR to its widest audience yet will document an anniversary production of CVR in New York City.

Now that we have the space, we need to find funding to help pay the cast and crew of CVR. We feel incredibly lucky that we have found a funding partner that will match what we are able to raise here on Kickstarter to produce the 3D version of our film.

That’s AMAZING. Dollar for dollar the impact is twice as great.

Your contribution and it’s match will help us make sure that we can make the film and pay everyone working on it. We want to make sure we can do this before we set off on this journey.

CHARLIE VICTOR ROMEO has always been a DIY effort, and the only way that the purity of its artistic vision is preserved is to keep it that way.

We want to capture our work in a way that makes us proud of the effort; the highest quality possible. With your help, we will accomplish this and bring audiences an unforgettable film experience.

  • Stereoscopic 3D, also known as "True 3D", is the stunning illusion of giving an individual the perception of depth in using what would commonly be seen as traditional two-dimensional, or "flat", visual media.

    Imagine how a video camera works, in that it captures a visual signal and outputs it to a monitor, such as your television screen. Now, imagine two video cameras that are very close together, the same distance apart from one another as the distance between the eyes on your face. Instead of displaying a single frame or sequence of frames from a single visual output to a person like a camera would normally do, two sequences of frames are captured from the combined cameras, one signal for each your left and right eye, and in sending these visual signals to each respected eye, Stereoscopic 3D, the illusion of depth, is achieved.
