Audioscopiks is a 1935 American short documentary film directed by Jacob F. Leventhal and John A. Norling. The main point of the short was to show off 3-D film technology. The film was nominated for an Academy Award at the 8th Academy Awards in 1935 for Best Short Subject (Novelty).
This was MGM's first film in 3-D, filmed using the red-green anaglyph process, with prints produced by Technicolor. Current prints appear to have faded to a crimson-cyan color, causing ghosting to occur when viewed.
Audience members are given a lesson on how 3-Dimensional movies are made. After being taught about 3-D, patrons are then instructed to put on their 3-D glasses. They are then given a demonstration of 3-D with various objects moving towards the camera, including a ladder, a baseball being thrown and a woman on a swing. Smith narrates each short clip, most being 20 seconds or less.
