Waiting Far Away – Fulldome Short

“An explorer of the cosmos has traveled too far… And can’t find home.”

In the creative process of producing planetarium shows, we often come across imagery that is stunning but doesn’t work in the context of a science show. And so our collection of fulldome astronomy art animations has matured into a hybrid form of storytelling where we mix imagination with real data.

What particularly excites us about backburner short projects, is that we produce them quickly. Its refreshing to just have a clear vision and then immediately crank it out. In the future we plan to continue creating fulldome shorts. Our next short will have a bleeding edge science topic to focus on. But we have other ideas for experiences in outer space that don’t fit your typical science show. More to come!


Domemasters Freely Available

  • Available for planetarium use. Contact me and I’ll give you an address to ship an external hard drive. Please include a SASE or IRC.
  • 4k domemaster frames, 30fps, 5.1 & stereo audio, (200GB).
  • 1k Quicktime MOV available for download by request (2.6GB).

  1. Hi Jason, Nice work. Would you be able to upload an HD clip to vimeo? Because that would be useful for small planetariums like us, and then we would not need to ship a hard disk half-way across the world :)

    • Done. I sent you an email with the 1k download link.

      Your planetarium dome has a beautiful design. I’m impressed with your mission at educate at no cost, and in multiple languages. Wishing you all the best!

  2. Dear Jason, i am also interested in downloading a 1k domemaster for use in my minidome when it’s ready this autumn. Love your work. Thanks in advance. Maarten maartenisaakdeheer.com

  3. Hi Jason,

    I run a mobile planetarium in Scotland, would it be possible to get the download link to the 1k Quicktime MOV version of your movie please?

    Best regards
    Steven

  4. Hello Jason.

    I would like to download the 1k Quicktime MOV too.
    I and some friends professors have a Portable in Natal, Brazil.
    We also wish to translate and record the narration into Portuguese language, if we may.

    Thank you!
    Jose.

  5. Hi Jason, What a very col piece of work. congratulations. We have a Portable Dome , based in Sussex, England and would love to have the 1K download link please.
    Many thanks in advance.
