SIGGRAPH 2005 Hosts Full-Dome Animation Theater

World's best full-dome animations from DomeFest 2005 to be shown at SIGGRAPH 2005 (July 19, 2005)

The SIGGRAPH 2005 Computer Animation Festival will feature full-dome video projection, a rapidly growing medium of immersive display, at the 32nd International Conference on Computer Graphics & Interactive Techniques being held 31 July to 4 August 2005 in Los Angeles, California.

The world's best full-dome animations from DomeFest 2005 are being shown at SIGGRAPH 2005. The animations produced by students, institutions, and full-dome professionals are screened daily on a 9-meter-diameter digital dome assembled specially for SIGGRAPH 2005.

Full-Dome video, with over 125 immersive displays, is deployed worldwide in planetariums and special-venue theaters. Freed from the "tyranny of the frame," artists transport viewers into fully immersive, mind-bending environments, and alternate worlds as they explore storytelling techniques for this new medium.


The Full-Dome Animation Theater is open to attendees beginning Saturday, 30 July at 6 pm in Hall G of the Los Angeles Convention Center.
