Our friend Pedro Zaz of UNITED VJs is a big fan of full immersion technology. As Modul8 is all about projecting images in a variety (or any) kind of space, it aught to be very tempting to try and project your work in a space that is specifically tailored to immersing an audience in the projected image. The following is information about how you can join up for some Fulldome action.
FULLDOME – CALL OUT to all VJs/ Video Performers of the world
From VJ to VJ,
Have you ever thought about VJing in a Planetarium? Yes? So now it is possible at FULLDOME UK 2011
All you need is to produce content in a Fulldome Master format,
- A resolution of 1080 x1080, 25 or 30 fps.
- Render your clips to the the DXV codec (Mac/PC free download).
Upload a small version of it (300×300) to youtube with the tag FULLDOMEUK2011 (no spaces) and send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org with the link. Music can be of your preference. Alternatively, on show day we will have a DJ. This will be on the 12th through the 13th of March in Birmingham. Bring your loops and we will copy them to our Media server with a hardware interface and you will be VJing in the dome!
We welcome you, VJ.
If you can´t come to our event we would love to hear from you and your ideas of VJing in digital planetariums. It really is a new ground for all of us, Fulldome VJing has only been possible due to recent technological advancements in software and hardware and the also new Planetarium directors being open to the potential of opening up the medium to a wider array of ideas, people and interpretations.

WHERE: Our next event, FULLDOME UK 2011, will take place at the Thinktank Planetarium in Bimingham on 12-13th March 2011. The event will run from 09:00-21:00 Saturday and from 09:00-19:00 on Sunday.
WHAT: A festival program is available and is regularly updated as more contributions to the event are added.
WHY: We see the Fulldome context as a rich site for the development of new material that will satisfy the demand of audiences across the World today for multi-sensory, participatory, immersive content that moves beyond the notion of the ‘screen’ into that of an ‘environment’ that can be appropriate in both educational and entertainment contexts. There is now an increasing acknowledgement world wide of how 3D experiences may change and enhance visual and aural perception. The reasons for this are still unclear and our proposed programme of work can offer ways of developing an understanding through experimentation and cultural/intergenerational exchange.
