Open Lens has gone fulldome!

The University of Alaska Anchorage commissioned us to make the first fulldome live-action wildlife film for a planetarium.  It’s an up-close exploration of McNeil River where more brown bears congregate than anywhere else in the world.  The show has been extremely well received at the University and this summer it will play daily at the Anchorage Museum.

Watching audiences experience the film on the huge dome was exhilarating.  The dome creates a sense of wonder that surpasses 3d, IMAX, and just about anything else. 

Now we’re hooked on fulldome and we have two

independent productions in the works.

We’re very excited about our

new fulldome show for children.

It’s an adventure to the Rooster

Cogburn Ostrich Ranch in Arizona

where children learn fun science

about ostriches, miniature donkeys, parrots, prairie dogs,

and much, much more!
