      Subject: [fulldome] "Perfect Little Planet" from the Clark Planetarium

      Hi everyone,

      Even though our "Secret of the Cardboard Rocket" show continues to be
      one of the most popular programs out there for families and schools, we
      also get lots of questions like: "When are you going to make a new solar
      system show for the same age group?" Our new show "Perfect Little
      Planet" is the answer!

      Imagine a family from another star system visiting our solar system to
      find the perfect planet to vacation on. This show features a little bit
      of everything - character animation, lively music (in a style similar to
      "Cardboard Rocket"), great details and fun rides. Last night we held a
      special preview for the media and VIP's and the response was
      overwhelmingly positive. One of my favorite comments was from a father
      who said his young son doesn't sit still for anything, but he was
      totally mesmerized throughout the entire 35-minute program!

      Not only is this the highest detail we've ever produced (true 4k
      environments), but it's also our first feature show at 60 frames per
      second. The motions were so smooth and clear that our audiences couldn't
      stop talking about the improved "feel" of the show. Sharp and steady
      motions that felt "real" instead of "movie-like" were common comments.

      The show opens to our public this Friday, and after several weeks of
      post-production based on multiple-source feedback, it will be available
      for distribution (at both 30 and 60fps). In the meantime, please have a
      look at our recently posted webpage:

      http://www.clarkplanetarium.org/distribution/index.php?page=perfectlittl
      eplanet

      There you can see a more thorough description, sample images and the
      trailer. The show will also play at the Zeiss Fulldome Festival this May
      (at 60fps!)...

      More info to come soon!

      Cheers,
      Mike.

          Greetings everyone! Our new solar system show Perfect Little Planet has proven to be one of the most popular fulldome productions we ve ever done here in
          Message 4 of 5 , May 23, 2012
            Greetings everyone!

            Our new solar system show "Perfect Little Planet" has proven to be one of the most popular fulldome productions we've ever done here in Salt Lake City. It's a bit hit with families and school groups but even adults (general audiences) like the approach and the way the information is presented.

            For those of you who have been running "Secret of the Cardboard Rocket" for years (here too!), it's become a splendid modernized replacement. School groups love the active flights by the planets and moons and teachers appreciate the curriculum that it covers.

            The show is now available for distribution! More information (including a link to download a full length flat screen version) is on our website:

            http://www.clarkplanetarium.org/distribution/index.php?page=perfectlittleplanet

            The show received great reviews by judges at the Zeiss Fulldome Festival (check out the webpage!). The show was developed at 4k resolution with 30fps and 60fps versions. We can distribute the show directly to most systems but we do have a host of re-distributors that you can use as well (Sky-Skan, E&S, Spitz, Global Immersion, Zeiss, RSA Cosmos, ePlanetarium, AVI, Ash Enterprises, and more).

            Questions? You can contact Nate Meinzer, my Show Distribution Specialist, at 385-468-1239, NMeinzer@...<mailto:NMeinzer@...> or feel free to contact me directly!

            Cheers,
            Mike.
