Rockin’ the DomeFest 08

Jul 7 2008 - 2:59pm


Denise (our Director of Education), Peter and Jim (two of our digital animators) and I met up with Richard (our Star Theater Director) and Mickey Jo (our theater manager) out in Chicago at the Adler Planetarium to attend the International Planetarium Society conference as well as DomeFest 2008 last week.We got the opportunity to check out some of the best produced, most inspirational dome productions that I’ve ever seen.

I won’t give away too much, but I’ll just say that the Coyote from “Earth, Moon, Sun” is getting an extreme makeover at the hands of Jay and his team.
