<nettime-ann> Dome Lab 2010

Dome Lab 2010 
Presented by the Australian Network for Art & Technology (ANAT)
31 October - 5 November 2010 :: Perth, Australia.
The emergence of ?destination cinema¹ and the proliferation of large-format
screens in public spaces present a challenge - and opportunity - to
filmmakers and artists working in more traditional screen formats. At the
very least a new cinematic language is required, one taking account of the
audience¹s very different experience of stories presented on ?frameless¹
screens. Fulldome, with its hemispherical screens and surround-sound, is an
accessible and powerful test-bed enabling filmmakers and artists to
experiment with and develop this new language.
Reflecting its provenance, most fulldome content to date has been
educational and comprised of computer-generated animation, data
visualistion, or a combination of both. Now, however, there is a shifting
focus, with producers turning their sights to the entertainment potential of
live-action story-telling for large-formats such as fulldome.
Dome Lab is a world-leading intensive workshop investigating this potential
and the specific challenges involved in creating compelling live-action
narrative content for large format and frameless screens.

Filmmakers and artists excited by the chance to leap beyond the frame and
into the expansive creative potential of large-format, immersive screen
experiences are invited to apply. Participants will work alongside a team of
creative and technical luminaries including Academy-Award winner, Ben Shedd,
2010 Peter Rasmussen award-winner, Peter Morse and international fulldome
pioneer, Hue Walker Bumgarner-Kirby.
Applicants must have a minimum of three years professional experience in
their field (except for SDA Subsidy applicants - see guidelines). Selection
will be based on skill-set, with a view to putting together four to five
small production teams. Accordingly, applicants from the full production
chain, including writers, directors, camera and audio operators, editors,
and designers are encouraged to apply.
Deadline for applications is 5pm CST, Friday 3 September 2010.
