The Light of Home is a short film designed for fulldome immersive projection spaces. Light is both the subject and the medium of this film which explores the emotional connections between light, place and memory. The story is driven by a soundtrack constructed from interviews in which people recall their experiences of light in the place where they grew up.
This innovative fulldome film uses the Daylight Observation data-set as it’s visual foundation and was created using a range of digital imaging and editing techniques. The work features music by Richard Godbold and a 5.1 surround sound mix by Mike Wyeld. These elements combine to deliver evocative storytelling through an immersive audio visual experience.
The Light of Home was a Finalist in the Jury Awards at the Jena Fulldome Festival 2016 and awarded the ‘Best Sonic Experience’ at the Fulldome UK Festival 2016. The film screened at the International Planetarium Conference in Warsaw in June 2016 and as part of the Catching the Light exhibition at the Sidney Cooper Gallery in Canterbury UK in August 2016.
