SEEING! A Photon's Journey Across Space, Time and Mind

SEEING! is now available for digital fulldome facilities free of charge by registering and downloading the program. Produced by Mirage3D and Koenig Films and funded through a generous grant by ZEISS this program will bring the story of sight and vision to planetariums around the globe. “Seeing!” was directed by Robin Sip and written by Emmy Award winning writer Kris Koenig. Neil deGrasse Tyson, American astrophysicist, cosmologist, author, science communicator and Director of the Hayden Planetarium in New York City, narrates the show.
“SEEING!” follows a photon’s creation and journey across the galaxy to a young stargazer’s eye. The viewer follows the photon into the girl’s eye, learning the structures of the eye and their functions, prior to taking a ride on the optic nerve. Dramatic fulldome imagery from around the globe featuring humanity, landscapes, skyscapes, wildlife and space will be used to create the story. Along the way the program examines how the eye works, how technology has enabled us to restore vision and prevent a variety of diseases that affect sight.
The program is produced in English, but planetariums may translate the program into other languages as long as they provide the recorded narration and a word document of the translated script to the producers. Program resources include the 4K domemaster files, audio files, a PDF copy of the script, and an education guide.
ZEISS customers may obtain an encoded version of the show from the Planetariums Business Unit directly.
