CinemaCon took place this week at Caesar's Palace in Las Vegas and Potter producers David Heyman and David Barron gave a non-spoilery interview to Collider just before the Warner Bros. presentation in which they talk about making the last film 3D, "Deathly Hallows: Part 1" for Blu-Ray and the length of the film. Some quotes from the interview:

Interviewer: You guys decided not to do the 3D conversion for Part 1, but you said 3D for Part 2. Is Part 2 still being released in 3D?
Heyman: Yes it is. The reason we didn’t do it on the first part was because we didn’t feel that we could do it justice. And actually the 3D would actually compromise the film, so we didn’t have the time.
Barron: We were diving into 3D for the first time, it was a new world for us, and so we didn’t get off to a fine start. There wasn’t time to do it properly, and so Warners very very kindly supported us. I’m sure they were wishing it was not the case, but they were hugely supportive to not put out something that we weren’t happy with.

Heyman: David Yates is approaching 3D from a character point of view.
Barron: It’s a storytelling aid. Rather than being a special effect gimmick where it’s like “Oh that’s cool.” We’re using it to help tell the story better.
Heyman: It’s probably gonna be more subtle than on some films, we’re not gonna have tons of stuff flying out the screen, we’ll have some but not much. The depth will not necessarily be as great as some films. But it will make the film feel larger, be more immersive, and I think it will add to the stories as opposed to take away.

Interviewer: What’s the running time of the final film?
Barron: It will be one of the shortest films.
Heyman: It will be the shortest film.
Interviewer: So what does that mean?
Heyman: We don’t know yet, because we’re still editing.
Barron: It’s not a short film, but it will be shorter than the others.

I’ll be seeing it in 2D first anyway cos that’s the way I saw all of them. I’m looking forward and also wishing it never comes. I get more and more excited everyday though
