Last chance to sign up for 2012 IMERSA Summit
There is still just enough time to arrange to join your colleagues at the IMERSA 2012 Fulldome Summit, which promises to be an historic “conversation of convergence”.
The Summit screenings include two fulldome world premieres: Lamps of Atlantis and Dynamic Earth.
Lamps of Atlantis is a co-production between Evans & Sutherland’s Digital Theater Productions and the Eugenides Foundation planetarium in Athens, Greece. The show explores the mythology of Atlantis and investigates clues to the origin of the names of modern constellations that may have come from this mysterious civilization.
Dynamic Earth explores the inner workings of Earth’s climate engine. It is the result of a collaboration between Spitz Creative Media, the Advanced Visualization Lab at the National Center for Supercomputing Applications (NCSA) at the University of Illinois, NASA’s Scientific Visualization Studio, the Denver Museum of Nature & Science, and Thomas Lucas Productions, Inc.
Other notable recent shows on the IMERSA Summit program include A Starry Tale (Kagaya Studio), The Wildest Weather in the Solar System (National Geographic) and Life: a Cosmic Story (California Academy of Sciences), which won Best Fulldome Program at the 2011 Jackson Hole Wildlife Film Festival.
A special screening of Solar System Odyssey (Morehead Planetarium) is another highlight - its screening will be followed by Dan Neafus' presentation, "Domenclature," about the need to create a film language for the dome and the lessons learned from producing the show.
