It seems like only last week we were getting ready for BAP 2011, the Planetaria event of the year for the UK and ROI. We’ve now had time to recover and reminisce over the events of the second weekend in September.
It was an early start for the astrochaps and chappettes of NSC Creative; we brought along new-girl Megan from the NSC Education Team for her first taste of BAP!
Our big news was official announcements and the screening of teaser trailers for ASTRONAUT 3D and We Are Aliens! They looked great on the Liverpool dome and were received with much excitement. A first for us was the screening of the in-production Fulldome film Cell! Cell! Cell! The content was still at “block-test” level but it was a great opportunity to get some feedback from the people who will hopefully be showing the film to the public and schools when it is finished. Despite our nerves of showing something that normally only the production team would see to so many people it was a great success and most people walked out of the dome genuinely having learnt something new!
The rest of the weekend was a lot of fun with some really interesting talks and demonstrations, great food and drink and the company of wonderful people. We can’t wait till next time, we have a feeling it will be a little closer to home also…
