五月天追夢3DNA available on Hulu and 5月天諾亞方舟 preview – updated

Update: information about 《5月天諾亞方舟》 in the last paragraph.

While 五月天 fans in Taiwan are anticipating the release of the movie 《5月天諾亞方舟MAYDAY NOWHERE 3D》, I found 《五月天追夢3DNA》(“Mayday 3DNA”) on Hulu (U.S. only). 《五月天追夢3DNA》 was released on September 16, 2011 in 3D. 《5月天諾亞方舟》 will be released on September 18, 2013 and will be in 3D (and 4DX where available).

The majority of 《五月天追夢3DNA》 comes from 五月天 concert footage from their 《D.N.A.》 tour that took place between 2009 and 2010. The other parts of the movie consists of three touching vignettes that conclude at a 五月天 concert in Shanghai. English subtitles are provided. There’s actually no option to turn them off. The songs in the movie are from albums that were released up to that point, which was《後青春期的詩》in 2008. 五月天 has so many songs that there’s no way they would get through them all in the movie, unless the movie was more than three hours long. All of the songs in the concert footage are in Mandarin, there were no Taiwanese songs. There are parts in the movie where it would look better in 3D, but it is mostly graphics during the concert footage that were added afterward. The sound on Hulu is not the surround sound quality found in the original, but the performances and music are still impressive. My favorites are 你不是真正的快樂 and 知足. Instrumental versions of 五月天 songs are in the background of the vignettes. Also not to be missed are versions of 知足, 倔強, and OAOA sung by 家家.

《5月天諾亞方舟》 consists entirely of concert footage from the 《諾亞方舟》 tour. The 《諾亞方舟》 tour began in 2011 after the release of the album 《第二人生》. The tour does not look like it will end soon, since the concerts in Europe were postponed until February 2014. Also, the tour will have additional stops in Japan, Korea, U.S., and Canada. 《5月天諾亞方舟》 is more technically advanced than 《五月天追夢3DNA》. 3D cameras were used to film concert footage. Sweeping overhead views of arenas were taken with a flying camera system. Spidercam technology was used for aerial footage within arenas. These are views one would not even get to see at a concert. Here are two previews that have been released.
