CORAL: REKINDLING VENUS COMES HOME FOR THE FIRST TIME

The stunning 2012 fulldome film “Coral: Rekindling Venus”, from renowned artist Lynette Wallworth, had never been shown in Sydney, where it was made. An 8-meter portable dome and the passion of John Maynard, the film’s producer, made it possible for the first time. In just four afternoons at Carriageworks, over 1300 people saw the film, many having their first fulldome cinema experience.

We also had our 3 meter STUDIO DOME on hand to demonstrate how production studios can use smaller domes to help with content creation and museums or galleries can use dome for small immersive video exhibitions.

The dome as it arrived at Carriageworks. From this...

...we find the parts needed...

...do a lot of clicking...

...hang the screen...

...put on the cover...

...to get a completed dome!

The audience gets comfortable on bean bags before the show begins. Switch of that phone!

Now we can get a coffee.

One of the amazing public spaces at Carriageworks. We could fit a 16 meter dome in here!
