Nederland, CO, USA — Loch Ness Productions, a fulldome show content creator in its own right, has been working with video producers over the past two years to bring world fulldome content to its client base. “We see these wonderful programs at events such as the Jena Fulldome Festival and say to ourselves that the folks back home have GOT to see them,” said Mark C. Petersen, LNP President. “We work with the producers on translations and updates for their shows, such as “Into the Deep” and the result is a richer selection of shows that bring science, space, art, music, and mathematics to the dome.”
“We’re really pleased to add these programs to our fulldome show lineup,” said Carolyn Collins Petersen, CEO of Loch Ness Productions. “They represent some of the finest educational and entertainment content out there for fulldome theaters, and there’s something for everyone.”
The four new shows added to the Loch Ness fulldome catalog are:
Earthquake: Evidence of a Restless Planet
A sweeping geological journey produced by the California Academy of Sciences’ Morrison Planetarium that surveys the many forces that lead to changes on the surface of our planet, using data-driven visualizations and location photography to bring audiences a real feel for the tectonic forces that affect our planet and our lives.
Into the Deep
There are two environments particularly suited to the immersive expanse of the dome: outer space and underwater scenes. From Austria’s Ogrefish Filmproductions comes this exemplary documentary, combining marine biology and underwater geology with the fascinating history of deep-sea exploration. Audiences experience dives to the “Lost City” and the RMS Titanic in the Atlantic, the famed Galapagos “black smokers”, and the Challenger Deep, the lowest point of the Mariana Trench in the Pacific. Loch Ness Productions adapted Into The Deep’s original script, and recorded a new narration by California-based voiceover actor Jon Mohr.
Chaos and Order – A Mathematic Symphony
A virtuoso performance of animation and music, and a refreshingly different take on entertainment “light shows” — a wonderfully choreographed journey into the world of mathematics visualization. Media artists Rocco Helmchen and Johannes Kraas take audiences on a majestic trip through the fascinating world of mathematics. This 40-minute tour de force goes beyond the functions and equations to show how math is the underpinning of every structure and event in the cosmos. Audiences learn the language of the cosmos in a whole new way through this beautiful and breathtaking immersive program.
A novel approach to quantum physics…
How do other cultures see the universe? What stories do they tell about the cosmos? Cosmic Dance, from filmmaker Harald Singer at LivinGlobe, is an intriguing and thought-provoking show that explores the universe through the eyes of Leela, a beautiful young Canadian physics student and dancer, as she gets in touch with the cosmos through her cultural upbringing. It’s a fascinating tour of an exotic culture, and gives your audiences the chance to see the cosmos through Hindu eyes.
