Immersive Matters

In my last column, I mentioned judging science videos for the Jackson Hole WILD festival. I normally judge in the Earth and Space Science category, but did not judge in the immersive category because of the possibility a video I worked on would be entered. More than 400 videos were submitted in the festival and I was responsible for viewing and judging about 36 of them in my category. 

Festival Time

The rise of fulldome content has led to another interesting phenomenon: the fulldome film festival. There are a number each year, bringing together content, judges, and audiences to see and give awards to new shows. They have their roots squarely in the realm of such festivals as Sundance, Cannes, and others (although perhaps not as fancy as those). 

IMERSA Strategic Planning

The IMERSA Board of Directors is pleased to invite you to take part in our strategic planning initiative, which will kick into full gear at the 2016 Summit. Ryan Wyatt will lead the strategic planning effort, but we need your support to make this effective and worthwhile.

Fulldome in Brno

The Fulldome Film Festival Brno hosted 152 planetarium and fulldome fans and producers from around the world. This one may set a record for endurance: 66 shows were shown nearly 27 hours and 25 minutes of dome time! According to Ryan Wyatt, who was in attendance, there were compensations. “Luckily, festival attendees also had the opportunity to relax and network in the comfortable environs of the Brno Observatory (with lovely views of the city and surrounding park),” he wrote. ”The observatory staff supplied visitors with name badges that included Czech phrases to help them ask for a beer or find their way back to the planetarium.”
