Producer / Programmer

I served as the Museum Planetarium Producer / Programmer. As Producer and Programmer, I created digital content for the full dome environment and theater. The content came in the form of:

• graphics to be displayed in/on the dome,
• program all Digital sky content presentations (Digital Sky by Sky Skan, refers to a large database that displays images of what exists in the sky and space in 3 dimensional space),
• program 'immersive' shows including Digital Sky, Digital Universe Data Sets, graphics, video, recorded and live sound, and lighting,
• worked with and designed environments and shows for musicians, astronomers, and other special events and guests.

Much of the content and programming that I created, lives within the system at the science center's planetarium and is still in use today. Unlike traditional 2D graphics, graphics for domed environments must be adjusted to appear properly on a concave three-dimensional surface.

This animated graphic which was created initially with Photoshop, Illustrator and Apple Motion / Shake (eventually morphed in After Effects [DomeXF plug-in by Sky Skan] for use on the dome) is shown prior to shows produced by `Imiloa

Planetarium Relaunch
In early 2008, astronomers, planetarians and the science community were invited from all of the world to participate in the reopening / relaunch of the `Imiloa planetarium. The relaunch of the theater was to introduce the new 3D Stereoscopic 8k system and featured the capabilities of the new system, as well as, talks and sky tours by world renown astronomers. The relaunch also offered participants dinners and luncheons, tours of Hilo, Volcanoes National Park and Mauna Kea and the Observatories, and the world premiere of the first 3D stereo show: 'Dawn of the Space Age' by Mirage3D (Robin Sip)
