Uncharted Domain – MassArt 2017: Fulldome Show

During the 2017 Spring semester at the Massachusetts College of Art and Design, students explored the topics of memory, transformation, and the outsider. In less than 5 months these students collaborated on all aspects of storytelling, concept development, video shoots, surround sound design, and 4k fulldome production.

It’s amazing what these students were able to create within one semester!
Due to the success of the previous 2015 and 2013 MassArt shows, we decided to work again with MassArt to bring art students into the planetarium. This semester the course was taught by Eric Freeman & Chico Colvard. Special thanks to Dan Callahan & Michael Dunne as the TA’s. Together they all did an incredible job of enabling the students to be creative within the huge technical hurdles.

Students: Camille Hinsey-Langlais, Chloe Dubois, Emily Quinlivan, Wren Quinn, Aven Paquette, Sam Aprea, Kelli Davies, Dylan Soulard
Media Production Instructor: Eric Freeman
Storytelling Instructor: Chico Colvard
Teaching Assistants: Dan Callahan, Michael Dunne
Special Thanks: Jason Fletcher, Nita Sturiale
