Screen Development Australia has just awarded me a full subsidy to participate in the Australian Network for Art and Technology’s Dome Lab. According to ANAT “Dome Lab is a world‐leading, industry‐focused workshop investigating the entertainment potential of fulldome and the specific challenges involved in creating compelling live‐action story‐telling for large format screens”. It will take place from the 31st of October to the 5th of November and will be hosted by the Western Australian Supercomputer Program (WASP) at The University of Western Australia.
The lab offers the opportunity to learn techniques for the creation of multimedia work using hemispheric fulldome screens and surround sound audio from international and Australian tutors including Academy Award winning writer/director Ben Shedd, 2010 Peter Rasmussen award winner Peter Morse, the University of New Mexico’s fulldome pioneer Hue Walker Bumgarner‐Kirby, Paul Bourke and Warik Lawrance.
Thanks very much to ANAT for selecting me from all the applicants around Australia, to Screen Development Australia for providing the subsidy and to Metro Screen, the NSW member of SDA for offering me a year’s membership.
I look forward to collaborating with participants Michele Barker (NSW), Mark Botolin (NSW), Grayson Cooke (NSW), Teresa Crea (SA), Sarah Mace Dennis (NSW), Martin Fox (VIC), Matthew Gingold (VIC), Sohan Ariel Hayes (WA), Chris Henschke (VIC), Donna Kendrigan (VIC), Claire Leach (WA), Michela Ledgwidge (NSW), Robert Pickles (NSW), Jeffrey Skinner (WA), John Swindels (TAS), Lindy Taylor (SA), Matthew Tierney (VIC), Julie Turner (NSW), Tanya Visosevic (WA) and Daniel Walsh (WA).
