Hi all,

Thought you might find the following of interest.. although its limited to Australian participants, we're looking to disseminate the outcomes far and wide through 2011..

Dome Lab 2010
Presented by the Australian Network for Art & Technology (ANAT)

31 October - 5 November 2010 :: Perth, Australia.

The emergence of ‘destination cinema’ and the proliferation of large-format screens in public spaces present a challenge - and opportunity – to filmmakers and artists working in more traditional screen formats. At the very least a new cinematic language is required, one taking account of the audience’s very different experience of stories presented on ‘frameless’ screens. Fulldome, with its hemispherical screens and surround-sound, is an accessible and powerful test-bed enabling filmmakers and artists to experiment with and develop this new language.

Reflecting its provenance, most fulldome content to date has been educational and comprised of computer-generated animation, data visualistion, or a combination of both. Now, however, there is a shifting focus, with producers turning their sights to the entertainment potential of live-action story-telling for large-formats such as fulldome.

Dome Lab is a world-leading intensive workshop investigating this potential and the specific challenges involved in creating compelling live-action narrative content for large format and frameless screens.

Filmmakers and artists excited by the chance to leap beyond the frame and into the expansive creative potential of large-format, immersive screen experiences are invited to apply. Participants will work alongside a team of creative and technical luminaries including Academy-Award winner, Ben Shedd, 2010 Peter Rasmussen award-winner, Peter Morse, visualisation and fulldome technical guru, Paul Bourke, international fulldome pioneer, Hue Walker Bumgarner-Kirby and award-winning animator and producer, Warik Lawrance.

Applicants must have a minimum of three years professional experience in their field (except for SDA Subsidy applicants - see guidelines). Selection will be based on skill-set, with a view to putting together four to five small production teams. Accordingly, applicants from the full production chain, including writers, directors, camera and audio operators, editors, and designers are encouraged to apply.

Deadline for applications is 5pm CST, Friday 3 September 2010.
