Kansas: An Immersive Dome Experience
A new movie is airing in the digital dome theater at Exploration Place called “Kansas: An Immersive Dome Experience“.
The filmed produced by Exploration Place was shot entirely by drones. It gives a true bird’s-eye view of Kansas with a different perspective, almost as if you were flying over the state. At 25-minutes, it’s short enough that people of all ages will be able to sit and enjoy the immersive film inside the unique dome theater.
Kansas: An Immersive Dome Experience captures more than 40 locations across Kansas. It’s been dubbed “A Love Letter To Kansas”.
Cinematography was provided by three drone operators based in Wichita: Jeremy Miller of Drone-tography, Kevin Stebral of Pro-UAVision and Matthew Kesterson of Three1Six Photography. An original score was composed and recorded by Wichita’s Trevor Stewart, internationally recognized as a virtuoso Chapman Stick musician. The film was edited by Nate Jones, Exploration Place’s multimedia specialist, using a virtual reality headset that accurately simulated the immersive qualities of the dome theater.
I stopped by to catch the show and it was really cool to see Kansas and many locations I’ve never been to before. The cinematography was outstanding and made you question anybody who has ever said Kansas isn’t a beautiful state.
The 60-foot screen with 360-degree views truly made it immersive and wouldn’t have been the same in any other theater in Wichita.
Here’s a trailer:
You can catch the film at Exploration Place every day.
Daily screenings take place at 10:15 a.m., noon and 3 p.m. along with a 7 p.m. showing only on Thursdays. Tickets for the show are $8 for adults, $7 for ages 3-11 and 65 and older. Discounted tickets are available for Exploration Place members.
