Hey all,



If you haven't gotten the news (and how could you when there's a communicator like me in the mix???) we're not doing a DomeFest this year. Instead, we're working to build more support and a greater program for 2011 when we'll reconvene in September.



For DF11, we'll continue curating the Juried Show and 'Making of' programs with the same philosophy of creating programs addressing production techniques, story/content innovation, and business models. 



One thing I'm excited about is adding a second juried show to the program: The Science Storytellers. We want to invite the community to use their home-dome realtime systems (DigitalSky, Digistar, Uniview, etc) -- and only their realtime systems (no compositing or other techniques) to create innovative and inspiring short science stories based in astronomy or any other science. Like the more general reel, submissions will be limited to five minutes, juried by some hot shots, and have Domies awarded.



We also want to expand and strengthen technical talks/papers/demos. Besides it being an IPS year, another reason we're taking 2010 off is to concentrate on our NSF-funded graphics research we're doing. Here's a little tease on the first month of work on that project: http://artslab-test.unm.edu/domegl/node/84



One of our partners on the research, the Institute of American Indian Arts, is keeping us busy supporting the development of their fulldome studio--a robotic 24ft (7.3M) dome capable of tilting 0 to 90 degrees. There will be a job opening for a faculty+dome director coming soon. I'll post it here when it's live.



So that's where we are and where we're trying to go. I'd relish any comments or suggestions.
