Urgent!!!! I need the artists addresses!

From the curator in Australia!

“Museum Victoria requires that I arrange a Memorandum of Understanding  (MOU)with all of the participating filmmakers.  Could you please let me know what name and address I should use on the MOU?  I will then send you a draft copy of the MOU for your approval.”


please email me your mailing address asap. 


Another request to screen Sentient!

The Melbourne Planetarium has been hosting Fulldome Showcases as part of the Melbourne International Film Festival (MIFF).  This film festival is the oldest and most prestigious film festival in Australia (and the 5th oldest in the world).   The Fulldome Showcases have proved to be very successful and we will be holding them again in August this year.

We have been invited to screen Sentient at the 2014 MIFF.

Fulldome Artist in Residence: Call for Applications | The Fulldome Blog

Fulldome Artist in Residence: Call for Applications | The Fulldome Blog.

Vortex Immersion Media is now accepting applications for its first international artist in residence program located in Los Angeles, California. The program is for artists interested in experimenting and exploring fulldome technology and immersive experience. Artists will receive hands on training provided by our Creative Director, access to the dome to work on projects and test concepts, one on one consultation and a public presentation of their experience at the end of the residency. The Vortex Immersion Media fulldome artist in residence will run June 1 – 30, 2014.

Someone from Sentient should do this!!!!!


The Art of Astrophysics – call for work!

The Art of Astrophysics.

The Universe is beautiful.

Astrophysicists try to share the mysteries of the Universe around us in a clear and understandable fashion, but we don’t always succeed. It’s a hard challenge – the wonders of the Solar System, the Galaxy, and the ever expanding Cosmos demand more of our imaginations than can be captured by numbers in a table or terms in an equation. However, a work of art can uniquely inspire us to look closely, to dream freely, to understand openly – anything from the smallest curiosity to the biggest discovery.


So, we’re asking members of the MIT community to create works of art that help us visualize our Universe and how we observe it. Whether you’re a photographer or a poet, a crafter or a coder, a musician or a moviemaker, we want you to use your talents and creativity to illuminate the beauty of astrophysical results. Please consider participating in this year’s Art of Astrophysicscompetition during MIT’s 2014 Independent Activities Period (IAP), sponsored by the MIT Kavli Institute for Astrophysics and Space Research.

Nice words from Colorado for you!

Hi All,

 I just wanted to let you all know that I finally got your show sliced for our dome, and I had a chance to watch it yesterday morning. I was completely blown away by the quality of the entire show! I am so impressed and amazed that your students created such a great piece in such a short amount of time. Thank you again for allowing me to screen this show here in our dome!
Best, Ben

Job Well Done!

Congratulations to each and every one involved in the creation of Sentient. We had 2 great audiences for our 2 screenings, many proud parents, and smiling students.  Thank you for all of your hard work. Now it is time for thank you notes, file storage, archiving, documentation and rest.

There was a lot of still image and video documentation done. Look for an email from Lina with suggestions for how to manage it all. but for starters please upload what you can to the dropbox. You will all want a clean version of the documentation for your portfolios.

You are awesome!
