immersive projection environments
Firstly, I'l add Im quite new to immersive production, 1.5 years infact but Im here for the long haul I hope! I read the related posts and articles with interest and see a common theme underlying; i.e. how to move the medium forward. From my perhaps naive (yet often tired!) eyes, the business model appears to be dominated by planetaria and therefore science. Of course I don't have a problem with this, I hold a Masters degree in Science myself, but perhaps fulldome's evolution will require stepping beyond the 'edutainment' methodology at some point? I know this is already happening now to some extent and of course the business model is less clear, yet watching 'The Tree of Life' recently crystalised this notion in my mind.
If fulldome could embody experience, beauty and most of all emotive narrative BEFORE education I think the public could be really turned onto this medium. Ok, enough rambling, here's a clip, enjoy: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GCxDZaWRAvo
