When in Dome…

The Morehead Planetarium & Science Center Production Blog

We’ve got one more behind the scenes video to share created by our production intern, Paul Davis. In it, Jay Heinz (that’s me) talks about all things related to audio and sound design used in Solar System Odyssey. I promise none of it is in the 3rd person, either.

It’s been a while since we’ve updated this blog because we’ve been pretty busy finishing up our latest show, The Longest Night: A Winter’s Tale. More about that in some later posts, but we’ve opened it at Morehead and it’s getting a great response.

In the meantime, I just wanted to share a behind the scenes video one of our incredible student interns, Paul Davis, produced. Paul had his hand in many aspects of The Longest Night, from RED camera operator, to rotoscoping to some After Effects animation. In his spare time, he made this video where Peter Althoff, our technical director, talks about some of the tricks involved with dome production that were specifically used in Solar System Odyssey.

Check it out and let us know what you think.
