Olive Films' Blu-ray release of Dragonfly Squadron, which streets today (October 14),
represents an interesting new development in the restoration of 3D films in the high
definition era. Instead of a studio doing its own (often very expensive) restoration, the
team at 3-D Archive, including Robert Furmanek and Greg Kintz, undertook this project
themselves at a significant cost savings, hopefully opening the floodgates for a bevy of still
unreleased 3D product from the brief but exciting heyday of the format in the 1950s. Blu-
ray.com staff reviewer Jeffrey Kauffman interviewed 3-D Archive's Greg Kintz, Technical Director at 3-D
Archive, about the Dragonfly Squadron restoration and 3-D Archive itself.
