What is it?
FDDB – The Fulldome Database is an exciting and friendly online community for people who are passionate about fulldome. We are an independent provider of information about fulldome technologies which focuses on fulldome shows, events and news.
Our main goal is to create an exciting and friendly community that will stimulate the overall fulldome creativity.
The more people become involved with fulldome, the bigger the ideas, the better the innovations and the more amazing the stories producers can tell.
“Some day in the not too distant future you’ll be able to go to a movie and the movie will be all around you. The movie will be over your head, it will be 360 degrees around you”
Steven Spielberg – TIME Magazine, 2006
Private companies, planetariums, independent filmmakers, students as well as anyone else can freely add their content to FDDB. With more than two hundred shows listed – and more being added every month – FDDB is the biggest and most accurate fulldome database available on the net.
Who we are
Based in Padova, Italy – the very same city from which Galileo Galilei made his discoveries – FDDB website was conceived and started by Dario Tiveron – former science project director at a digital planetarium. FDDB is not property of any planetarium vendor or video production company and does not produce, nor distribute, any in-house or third parties’ fulldome shows.
We do not sell screening licenses, nor any other kind of copyrighted materials.
FDDB is show-oriented and provides an online database where Planetarium Managers and fulldome enthusiasts can get information about fulldome contents to quickly pinpot their interest and find new ones.
FDDB comes as a free service, both to users as well as producers. While we do not exclude sponsorships for the future, there are no sponsors behind the scenes at this time. FDDB comes as a self-sustained project.
FDDB is committed to providing the world’s best coverage about fulldome shows, events and news, so we welcome your contributions to the site, whether they be through comments to our pages or offerings of new editorial content.
FDDB – The Fulldome Database was launched on November 2nd, 2011.
