To Protect a Paradise

Stunning, 360 live action short film, shot above and below the water, exploring the challenges faced by local people in the Aeolian islands in Italy and their plans to establish an effective marine protected area and a low-impact, sustainable local fishery.

This content is brought to you by the Blue Marine Foundation and videographer Danny Copeland

Running time: 6 minutes

Climate Crimes

Climate Crimes is a large-scale immersive fulldome video installation, which explores the complex relationship between global air pollution, climate change and human migration.

This immersive film investigates how anthropogenic aerosols and other atmospheric particles originating in the wealthy nations of the global north – Europe, USA, China, and others, impact global climate systems and contribute to the desertification and migration in the Sahel region of north Africa. The spatial video content is designed to immerse the viewer in this cyclic story of cause and effect. The imagery shifts from microscopic to universal scales, incorporating the physical dome structure in the narrative movement across complex data sets, global perspectives and human stories.

This content was produced by Michaela French.

Running time: 11 minutes

Total running time: 30 minutes
