Radio City Christmas Spectacular is actually spectacular

Over break I went to NYC with my family and on Friday we went to see the annual Rockettes Christmas show at Radio City Music Hall.  I knew going into it that there would be a couple of scenes that required 3D glasses but I was in no way expecting to be as impressed as I was. Not only where there two scenes with actual "3D" components, the entire backdrop for most scenes was done in 3D animation and projected on a screen behind the stage. The realistic aesthetics that this added to the show were absolutely incredible. After taking this class and trying my own luck with 3D animation I have an even greater appreciation for the work that was done for this show.  Yes, the Christmas Spectacular was a little over the top...but isn't that the point?
