Virtual IMERSA Days

Welcome from the Board of Directors

Creating Audience Impact

An insightful presentation by Michael Daut (Michael Daut Productions) about creating audience impact, extending a discussion he began at the last IMERSA and offering five simple principles for storytelling in the dome. In educational programming, the audience is often the forgotten partner in the equation. Especially in the immersive dome format, the audience is more important to consider than ever. Immersive media naturally places the audience right inside the experience, providing an emotional connection that simply does not exist in other forms of media.


August 21st9 a.m. PDT/10 a.m MDT/noon EDT/5 p.m. GMT/6 p.m. CEDT/midnight Tokyo

Art in the Dome 

Dani LeBlanc, Director of the Charles Hayden Planetarium and Adult Programs at the Museum of Science, Boston, leads a panel focusing on the art and business of presenting artistic efforts under the dome, including pivots made in the age of COVID, from the perspectives of producers, managers, and artists working in Planetariums across the US. 

What's our Future?

A live, interactive discussion with our community. What is the future of fulldome particularly in an age of pandemic?Come share your insights into where our business is going and what effects we've felt from COVID-19.


August 28th9 a.m. PDT/10 a.m MDT/noon EDT/5 p.m. GMT/6 p.m. CEDT/midnight Tokyo

A Look at Camera Technology

A look at today’s state-of-the-art camera technologies featuring the 8K Digital Camera Comparison demo produced by the Giant Screen Cinema Association, and ultra-high-resolution camera used in recent fulldome show creation by the California Academy of Sciences, Museum of Science-Boston, Mirage3D, Felix & Paul Studio, and others. We will explore the capabilities and potential of these remarkable tools to capture live-action content with video resolutions necessary for today’s 6K and 8K digital dome systems. Led by Michael Daut, who will moderate a Q&A after the panel discussion.

Our featured guest speaker is Eddie Sotto,

President of SottoStudios/LA and former Senior vice president of concept design at Walt Disney Imagineering.

He'll be giving us look at how Imagineers make their magic, and how we in the immersive community can apply some of that magic to our own work.
