Made in 2005 for the Houston Museum of Natural Science.
Directed by Sharad Kant Patel

Two animators (Kurt Larsen, Slade Deliberto), one composer (Matthew Henning:, and then me (Sharad Patel) doing script polish, temp voice tracks, storyboard & animatic, compositing, 2D effects, and then the biggest creative challenge: sound design and mix.

I was of course inspired by the sound designing ways of Ben Burt for "Star Wars".

This was originally shown with 2K frames created by stitching projectors on a curved screen. The viewer stands out on a podium a little bit into the screen for an immersive, motion-ride experience. That's why the compositions and frames are kept at a wide continuous view.
