I read an article in Moviemaking magazine that with the popularity of 3D, the stereographer gig was becoming the in demand specialist skill to have. Do you folks out there in the field see this? How much training, that is, if you're already an experienced AC,cam op or DP do you need and what's the learning curve like? I'm assuming there are workshops around for this type of thing and I'm sure like everything else in this business, start up costs aren't cheap, espeically considering that you'll need two cameras to start of with.

I've heard about this myself. I myself would also like to know what would need to be learned for 3D cinematography.
now, I will hazard a guess. RED company has a camera (SCARLET) where two cameras can be joined to make a 3D camera rig, as well as the 21st century 3D camera. both of those would provide lower-cost alternatives to something like the IMAX Solido or 3D-30. the learning curve, would be less for digital 3D, as well as costs lower. remember, with 2 frames to make 1 3D frame, twice as much film is needed, so digital is much more economical (I'm not going into film vs digital for this.)
depending on how the 21st and the RED cameras work, learning stereography may require almost no additional learning-the camera interface would be almost the same, the difference would be dimensions and weight of the rig.
