Earth | Tree | Sky

Short Film for Dome & Planetarium Display

Earth | Tree | Sky

Designed as both a fulldome and virtual reality experience, “Earth | Tree | Sky” immerses the viewer in the mystery and majesty of a tree in all its domains, from earth to sky.

Viewers are taken on a meditative journey, fully enveloped in the intimate complexity of roots and grasses, branches and leaves. The piece expresses, with reverence and a visual poetry, that a tree belongs to the earth, the land, and the sky, bridging these domains with grandeur and grace.

This piece is 6 minutes long and was screened at several fulldome film festivals in the USA, UK and Australia. The trailer is shown below…

Music by Barry Lockwood

Fulldome Display

Fulldome is the round projection format required to display over the surface of a dome, such as a planetarium.

It is an immersive experience that can be shared by an audience, compared to virtual reality immersion where the viewer requires a VR headset.
