Presentation with cinematographic examples by Professor Micky Remann

High noon in the Fulldome: Students from the Bauhaus University in Weimar present adventurous, fantastical, tear-your-hair-out, sometimes even avant-garde episodes from the treasure trove of the popular writer Karl May. The 360° dome films breathe new life into his fiery east and wild west. In May 2017 the Fulldome theater “Winnetou360” premiered at Jena Planetarium. The immersive films were combined with readings, 360° spatial sound compositions, male choirs and dance and performance elements. Professor Micky Remann introduces the performance project revolving around Winnetou in a lecture with film excerpts. An adventurous ride into the future of media art.
