CREATING THE COSMOS "IMAX screened film"
Run Time - 5:11 Release Date - 10/28/15
Sequence from CREATING THE COSMOS, a film being made for the IMAX® and giant screen theaters.
First screened at the Giant Screen Cinema Association's annual conference in San Francisco this past September with IMAX's® groundbreaking new 4K laser projection system.
After creating Shanks FX episodes for the past 3 years, I realized that one of the underlying components of my "in-camera" visual effects was capturing real world physics in action. From magnetic putty to dry ice bubbles, the things I captured on camera were often based on science and physics.
I thought - a giant screen film about DIY physics and fluid dynamics would be a fresh contribution consistent with my niche. It would deal with both outer-space and nature - a large percentage of the giant screen market.
If you are curious on what it would be like for a DIY filmmaker trying to break into the IMAX® & giant screen market, check out the 4500 word write-up I did of my adventures in getting this video made and ultimately projected onto the second largest screen in North America with the entire giant screen community in attendance.
