REEF at the Fulldome Festival in Jena
Another great Fulldome Festival in Jena has ended. This year we could enjoy a whole range of new Fulldome content as well as creative and innovative ideas of performances inside a dome. One project which really impressed us was the dance choreography “Fermentation” by the Japanese video artist Masashige Lida.
What made us really happy were the presentations of first year university students who showed us works from the field of animation, fulldome and moviemaking.
Thomas Bannier, a student at HfG Offenbach, received this year´s Short Film Fulldome award, which was sponsored by Reef, for his movie “My little brother Jimmy”. Again, Congratulations!
We would like to thank the whole team of the Festival, who made this a worthwhile experience. We are very much looking forward to next year’s event!
