Although this film has nothing to do with astronomy, we felt that it was far too creative not to include it in our library!

Designed in stereoscopic fulldome, VORTEX is an experiment in the audio-visual language of immersive environments. It is an ephemeral sculpture, driven by geometric soundscapes. VORTEX is mastered at 8k, 60fps, in stereoscopic fulldome and has 3D spatial sound. When experienced together, these elements build a highly immersive and intimate environment. It is completely free to download and is available in several fulldome formats. If you would like a copy, please contact Aaron Bradbury.
