Things are progressing well at the new Fakieh Planetarium at the Al Shallal Theme Park in Jeddah, Saudi Arabia.

We’ve been working with Dome3D to create the client a custom fulldome movie that promotes the park, the new planetarium capabilities, the scientific heritage of Saudi Arabia.

Dome3D have just returned from their second trip to Saudi where they were shooting more scenes using the seriously cool Freedom360 rig – some of the footage they have captured of local areas is stunning and will look great on the dome…. Previews to follow in the coming weeks.

The planetarium is slated to open early 2016 – we have been working with the client since 2013 and have licensed (and in some cases, had translated into Arabic) a library of fulldome and flat-screen 3D films for the new theatre.

Watch this space!
