Article Summary:

"Joseph Smith: Prophet of the Restoration" opens 17 December 2005 in the Legacy Theater using the first digital projector in Utah.  The film uses 4K technology, with a high resolution of 4096 x 3072. Only a few Hollywood movies, including "Spiderman 2," have used 4K technology.

"With incredibly high resolution and having it shown on a 60-foot screen, things had to be as perfect as possible.  There was no room for forgiveness."   (Brian Rowland, special effects team)

"The entire movie will fit on one big drive and is stored in a server as ones and zeros.”  (Brian Rowland, special effects team)
