Dinosaurs at Dusk fulldome film final two Months of production.
- Dear fulldome users,
At Mirage3D we entered the last two months of production of our next
fulldome title : "Dinosaurs at Dusk 3D", a production we started nearly
three years ago.
"Dinosaurs at Dusk, the origins of flight", is our biggest production to
date, it involves extensive green screen recordings combined with very
detailed virtual sets of jungles, beaches, salt flats, canyons and oceans.
We travelled the World to obtain source data for creating the sets.
If you would like to get more information or licensing options for
"Dinosaurs at Dusk" please contact: Robin Sip.
"Dinosaurs at Dusk" is a fulldome film that will feel to the audience more
like a Hollywood movie without compromising the educational information.
It deals with palentology, biology, astronomy and geology.
The K/T extinctions will play an important role in the film as well as
feathered dinosaurs and the ancestry of birds.
Please follow the last months of this production online:

First Year University Students FullDome Award
We are most thankful to the California Academy of Sciences for supporting
this Award. The award wants to honor and encourage the work of students
who are at the beginning of their university studies but motivated to test
their fulldome ideas and skills. Students are eligible for this award if
they have enrolled at their current university no earlier than 2012. The
general submission guidelines are the same as for everyone else. Deadline
for sending in the show is April 23rd.
The California Academy of Sciences is one of the most prestigious science
centers in the world www.calacademy.org.
Part of the Academy complex is the Morrison Planetarium, equipped with a
digital fulldome projection system. The Academy is also producer of
professional fulldome feature shows, some of which have been presented at
the Jena Festival. EARTHQUAKE, the most recent production, is expected to
be shown at the 2013 Festival. In its support of the First Year University
Students Award, the California Academy of Sciences recognizes the
importance of honoring talented students and their fresh approach, which
has always been a key aspect of the Jena FullDome Festival.
