Stories in the Stars
2013
27

Erica and Daniel are two Indigenous Australian teenagers from the city.  This weekend, instead of going to a party, they are at Lake Tyrrell in north-west Victoria which is their family’s country.  They spend the weekend walking around the lake with Grandma and Grandpa, hearing stories about the constellations in the night sky and learning about how this relates to their culture.

European night sky stories are familiar to many people.  However the stories indigenous to the southern skies are less well known.  Although different Australian Aboriginal groups have different astronomical traditions, there are some broad similarities between many traditions which are often very different to more familiar astronomy.

Fulldome show Stories in the Stars explores Indigenous Australian astronomy and how Indigenous culture describes constellations that cannot be seen from northern latitudes.  Even constellations that can be seen from Europe appear a different way in the sky in the southern hemisphere.

Starlight

For thousands of years we have looked to the stars at night in wonder and awe.

Their mysteries have inspired curiosity across all cultures and civilizations.  Starlight is told through the eyes of Margaret, as she steps back in time to relive childhood fears of the dark that awoke her curiosity about the night sky.

Starlight features stunning visualizations that take audiences from Earth to the stars, through nebulae and galaxies, and on trips through the hearts of stars and supernova explosions.  It also presents Christiaan Huygens’s first attempts to study starlight, and introduces the concept of spectroscopy — all as part of Margaret’s personal story about exploring the sky.

Join Margaret as she takes you on an out-of-this-world journey to discover constellations and ancient cultures, the birth and death of a star and the inner workings of our Sun.

“How does the Universe work?  How was it even created?”  Growing up, everyone has thought about these fundamental questions, but there are still people who keep searching for the answers — Scientists.

Scientists are seeking a certain person.  His name is T.o.E.  If they catch him, all the mysteries of the physical world will be solved.  The scientists are finally able to locate him, but the moment they try to catch him, he escapes with ease.  He says, “Welcome to my world,” and invites us to a fantastical journey.

He traverses space and time, from the world of the infinitesimally small to the vastness of the macroscopic world of space, and from the present day to the distant past, up to the birth of the Universe.  What lies at the end of this journey is something that will change how we perceive reality forever.

Who in the world is T.o.E.?  Will the scientists catch him?  The journey beyond dimensions starts now.

Explore

A tapestry of jaw-dropping action, combined with rich STEM content … for example, physics of the real world – how climbing is a tug-of-war between friction and gravity, while skiing involves the same battle of forces in reverse.  Educational insights about the engineering of climbing gear and skis, and the aeronautical effects of a wingsuit, are seamlessly integrated with dramatic visuals and action.  The film is narrated by Willem Dafoe and was released in early 2018.

Australia’s Great Wild North
2018
41, 37, 25

Far Northern Australia is a land of extremes.  Huge bushfires ravage the ancient landscape in the dry season and the world’s biggest thunderstorms bring torrential rain and flooding in the wet season.  These almost Jurassic conditions have created some of the richest wetlands on Earth.

The coast, rivers, and waterholes are haunted by sharks.  The plains are guarded by territorial buffalo and venomous snakes but the apex predator here is a living dinosaur the salt water crocodile.  They have been on the planet in almost identical form for 200 million years – even surviving the meteor strike that wiped out the rest of the dinosaurs.

Crocodiles are the ultimate predators.  They attack with stealth, are extremely aggressive and can grow up to 7 meters in length.  Up here, they have even been known to attack and pull fisherman out of boats.

This film will carry the viewers across the whole Top End of Australia, from the wild Kimberly coast through mysterious and rarely seen Arnhem Land and then deep into the world’s oldest rainforest in Cape York.

Come with us on an epic journey through some of the wildest landscapes on Earth as we take you deep into crocodile’s world.  Australia’s Great Wild North will be shot in magnificent 8K for IMAX and other Giant Screen theaters.  Specialized underwater camera rigs have been designed to get the audience closer than ever before to the most powerful jaws on Earth.

Hello Earth
2017

Why do we long for contact with others so much?  Does Internet really connect people?  How can we tell other potential inhabitants of the Universe that we’re here?

Seeking contact with others remains one of the earliest and strongest humans’ needs.  By trying to fulfill this need, we invented writing, radio, telephone, and finally – the Internet.  We overcame language barriers, problems related to distance, and information flow time.  Thanks to modern technologies and communication devices, we develop our civilisation – we are changing the world and ourselves.

Hello Earth will take you on a journey through landmark moments of the history of communication: you will fly over the mythical Tower of Babel, see the first pictograms – paintings in Lascaux Cave, pay a visit to Johannes Gutenberg, visit a surrealistic library, witness the first ever phone call, see the beginnings of the Internet, and launch of the Voyager.  You will immerse into Space and – who knows – maybe you will hear someone seeking contact you with?
