When in Dome…

The Morehead Planetarium & Science Center Production Blog

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.

    Great to see behind the scenes. I didn’t know your team works in Maya! Its interesting to hear you talk about tunnels and see your pre-production sketches. We just finished our new show too, “Moons: Worlds of Mystery”.

    Thanks, Jason! Yeah, we do most of our 3D work in Maya. I’ve heard about your new show, but I haven’t seen any trailers or footage of it. Will it be at IMERSA?
