“Faster Than Light” takes Director’s Award at Brno

Attendees at Fulldome Festival Brno last week were among the first to see the latest Spitz fulldome production, Faster Than Light! The Dream of Interstellar Flight. The show was awarded the Brno Observatory and Planetarium Director’s Award, which recognizes a production that takes full advantage of the unique fulldome format and promises great audience response.

Faster Than Light! The Dream of Interstellar Flight dazzles audiences with virtual rides aboard spacecraft of the future. They are based on whole new technologies designed to achieve ultra-high speeds, using exotic next generation rocket fuels and breakthrough concepts in physics. How far can our technology take us?

Narrated by Sean Bean, Faster Than Light! is a co-production of Spitz Creative Media, Mirage3D, and Thomas Lucas Productions, Inc. This project is supported by the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania and the Pennsylvania Film Office. Special thanks to Carolyn Sumners at the Houston Museum of Natural Science and Linda Powell at the Harrisburg State Museum for organizing focus group screenings to help fine-tune the show.
