Working on a new fulldome production….


In a little under a week we begin main production on our newest fulldome dance piece. Building upon the highs and lows of last years experimental fulldome dance trilogy ‘Submergence’ we are  excited to be undertaking our first 15 minute narrative driven fulldome film. Coreo Cymru and URRL are once again joining forces and will be collaborating with Earthfall to adapt their award winning dance piece into the fulldome movie ‘Pal o’ Me Heart’.

Some recent images of the production team of the Sublime, out last week across various locations in South Wales undertaking principle filming in some very harsh conditions!

Key team members shot in the greenscreen studio at the Newport Riverfront Theatre.

After an extremely exciting, technically  challenging and  innovative week of shooting both out on location and in Newport Film Studios we here at The Dance Dome HQ are delighted to announce that we have wrapped on the principle filming of The Beautiful, which is the first of our three short dance films in production which will form the Submergence Trilogy.

It has been an amazing week with a truly international cast of characters making it all possible. Within this week alone we have had 3 Americans, 5 English, 1 Spanish, 1 Finnish, 1 German, 1 Portuguese, 1 Greek and an uncountable number of Welsh making the cogs of creation turn.

Working with Tanja Raman & her Creative Collaborator John Collingswood has been a real pleasure for the crew, and thanks must go out to Laura Moy who was just the perfect dancer to work with for this piece. Tanja & John worked with Laura tirelessly to rehearse and choreograph sensibly for this piece and it showed in the filming where we had a great problem free run of capture.

Editing will begin after the production of the following two films however we cannot wait to see this content after it begins to be processed onto the amazing timelapse back plates being captured by Bill Mitchell & 360ø images by  Matt Wright.

Second Visit to Penpont Estate

The Key production team returned today to Penpont Estate, just to the West of Brecon to continue location scouting and timelapse capture.

Bill Mitchell returned with Tom Hardy to capture additional back-plate sequences, whilst Janire Najera, Joe Abraham Dean & Justin Duval worked on production logistics for the up and coming location shooting for the Sinister.

Looking forward to seeing the results that the team produce.

Today the team went  to a local forest to work out locations for filming some fragments of The Sinister. Bill Mitchell, Matt Wright, Janire Najera  & Tom Hardy shot some timelapse and Joe &  Justin got to play with one of the emotimo’s.

Bill Also potentially managed to capture some backplates for The Beautiful.

all ready for Monday?

On Friday we installed the green screen and we painted the dance floor at the studio. Dolly is on position and final lighting needs to be finalized on Monday before the filming begins. exciting!
