Astrocinematography Road Trip (2012)

I’ve been commissioned by the Gascoyne Aboriginal Heritage and Cultural Centre of Carnarvon, Western Australia, to produce a fulldome program that illustrates elements of Indigenous Australian astronomy. This will feature visualizations displayed upon a looping program that runs in a walk-in/walk-out 4 metre horizontal dome at the Centre. The exhibition...

Banff Centre: 2011 Adventure Filmmakers’ Workshop

I arrived at the Banff Centre for the 2011 Adventure Fimmakers’ Workshop a couple of nights ago – after a very long flight from Hobart, Tasmania. As I was travelling with Qantas, I guess I was pretty lucky to get away just before the entire airline closed down – but...

Experiments in Astrocinematography

R&D in astrocinematography of the the southern skies, using various motion-control camera systems we’ve developed. Environmental cinematography (landscape, skyscape, seascape, celestial) and immersive imaging in remote (and often difficult) places creates specific challenges in developing hardware and software platforms to capture and create immersive content – that can be reprocessed...

Syn[a]+ : Project Outline

Syn[a] is a group of creative people (artists/inventors/engineers/scientists) developing and experimenting with systems to visualize and sonify the biometric data of an orchestral performance over ultra-high-bandwidth networks. We have lots of experience, lots of ideas and will make new things. Needless to say, this page is in progress. See: here...

Fulldome HDR Timelapse Experiment (2010)

Shot at Cradle Mountain National Park, Tasmania, Australia. Basically a test of our self-designed-and-built motion-contolled (moco) camera tracking system, using a Canon 5D MkII, with custom intervalometer. This is genuine HDR using triple exposure (-2,0,2 f-stops) aperture-controlled with moco synchronisation. No fHDR or tone-mapping from LDR here. This was done...

SCARI – Kinect – Unity3D – OSX- Skeleton Tracking

A couple of experiments as I figure out how to get SCARI working. Basically, this involved getting the brilliant Kinect Unity3D OpenNI wrapper demo by Amir working on my Mac Pro. It was very straight-forward, following his instructions (thanks Amir!) – just need OpenNI+NITE (simple-openni for OSX is here), along...

DomeLab 2010

Early November I am fortunate to be a tutor at DomeLab 2010 presented by ANAT at iVEC@UWA (WASP). We have an exciting bunch of tutors (specialists in ultra-high-definition immersive cinema and fulldome) and a broadly talented and experienced group of participants. The blog and details can be found here :...

Beyond the Frame :: Fulldome @ Launceston Planetarium

ANAT Presents: Beyond The Frame: Introducing Australian Filmmakers And Media Artists To Fulldome. The emergence of ‘destination cinema’ and the proliferation of large-format screens in public spaces present a challenge – and opportunity – to filmmakers working in traditional screen formats. However, unless you have the chance to experience large-format for yourself, it’s almost...

Hobart Fulldome: An Imaginary Immersive Space

A concept visualisation for a Hobart Fulldome cinema and visualisation centre, along the Hobart waterfront at Sullivan’s Cove. Two simple platonic shapes for a platonic concept – of course, I would expect architects to do much better – but it could be very simple. It could be somewhere else entirely...
