The first career choice for Martin Scorsese, one of the most acclaimed film directors of all time, was to become a priest. His attempt to enter the Roman Catholic priesthood was unsuccessful, instead he took up film-making studies in New York University. His latest film and his first 3D film Hugo, an adventure drama, was a top runner in 2012 Oscars, nominated for eleven Academy Awards, of which it won five, and seems to be a turning point in Martin Scorsese’s career. The director is so pleased with the possibilities brought by 3D technologies, that he has announced that all his future films will be filmed in 3D.
