Re: Loch Ness Productions as content providers
- Hi, all.
Just to be completely accurate regarding the inclusion of Loch Ness
Productions in the list of fulldome content providers...
Our initial forays into fulldome programming were displayed at IPS last
summer. We showed one program in its entirety, "Sky Quest", during the
SkyVision Fulldome Festival. We also made fulldome segments from six of
our planetarium shows, and these clips were shown in SkyVision during our
demo in the Boeing Cyberdome theater, and in both the MediaGlobe and
SciDome display theaters as well.
As of this writing, "Sky Quest" is the first and only fulldome program
we've produced in its entirety. What we ran in Wichita finished rendering
the day of our flight out; the first time we saw it on the dome through
reasonably calibrated and aligned projectors was with the first
audience. (Of course, during production we saw many pieces and tests on
Sky-Skan's test dome). While there were no major faults, the show still
needs some more tweaking to raise it from "the first render managed" to a
fully polished output.
Regarding the other programs we showed clips from: we do intend to produce
them in full fulldome form -- "Oceans In Space", "MarsQuest", "Tis The
Season" and more. We're working on several fronts to round up the
resources and financing to make it happen. We hope to have some news on
that front to announce in the near future.
