VFX house, Moonraker VFX, has launched its first original film for the Fulldome market.
Moonbase: The Next Step, is an immersive 4k Fulldome film, that takes viewers on “an inspiring and breath-taking lunar experience. A journey that will push scientific and technological advances to the limit.”
Narrated by former NASA astronaut Nicole Stott, the film will place viewers in an immersive environment that “realises the sheer scale of the Moon itself and the immense task of working and living in such a hostile environment as we embark on the next chapter of space exploration.”
Simon Clarke, Co-founder and Creative Director at Moonraker, commented; ‘As a studio, we’ve thrived on the creative challenge that comes with breaking into a new market. Combining the two elements of cinematic visuals and the dome screen can be incredibly powerful – not only enhancing the storytelling experience but immersing visitors in breathtaking worlds of astronomy and planetary science that feel almost tangible. We’re looking forward to stretching the boundaries of what’s possible in this space’.
While this project will be produced for Planetarium audiences, Moonraker is already planning spin-offs in other formats, to include Television, Augmented Reality and Flying Theatres.
Jon Grafton, Co-founder and Managing Director at Moonraker, comments; ‘This is an incredibly exciting milestone for the business and having the ability to create our own licensable content is a core part of a growth strategy’.
