History

 

In April of 2007, Dome3D was incorporated with the vision of producing quality fulldome content for the planetarium industry.  Today Dome3D works in many mediums for a wide variety of clients -  from planetariums and museums to corporate 360 video projects, sales and support. 

SpacePark360 and SpacePark360: Infinity, Dome3D's flagship fulldome productions, play around the world to great fanfare.  Dome3D has lead fulldome production training sessions around the globe for newly built or upgraded digital theaters.  We have also partnered with hardware and software vendors to create a one stop shop for fulldome systems, content, training and support.

On a personal note - from exploring and teaching new fulldome production methods, developing a passion for immersive content creation and increasing my understanding of astronomy, biology, history and everything in between (even jumping out of a plane), this journey has been one of personal growth and artistic experimentation.  Working with many talented people over the years, has been nothing short of inspiring.

I am grateful to my family, friends, business partners and clients for the guidance and support you have all shared.  I look forward to continuing the journey for many years to come.
