Denver, CO, USA — IMERSA would like to invite you to send your favorite short fulldome excerpts, each from 30 seconds to 1 minute long (dome originals with optional synchronized audio – see specs below), for possible inclusion in our IMERSA Sizzle Reel 2015, to be presented at the IMERSA Summit in February 2015.

The IMERSA Board will review the submissions and choose the clips that we feel best illustrate the power of immersive media. We will cut these highlight clips together into an exciting fulldome montage that we will distribute for free to theaters around the world.

The 2014 premier of the Sizzle Reel, proved to be one of the most popular and memorable moments the IMERSA Summit. This reel is now regularly presented at conferences and fulldome demonstrations showcasing the uniqueness of our fulldome medium.
