Abstract: Moonwalk is a stroll on the Moon through time and space, a lyrical history of humanity's scientific and allegorical relationship with the Moon from the beginnings of culture to the Space Age and the memories of the Cold-War generation. It is an experimental film in both genre and form, a computer animation designed for projection on a planetarium cupola. A hemispherical film, Moonwalk creates an immersive experience. The fulldome format presents aesthetic and technical challenges to create a new form of imagery and spatial montage. A seven-minute excerpt of the work-in-progress was shown at INSAPV in the Adler Planetarium, Chicago.
