Recieve A ‘Postcard From Earth’

Postcard From Earth” steeps you in a very loose 50-minute tale about life rising from the oceans onto the land, the birth of human civilizations and the moment, not so deep in the future, when humanity departs a despoiled Earth to settle other worlds — in the process recalling our home planet’s magnificence.

The Film screens at The Sphere In Vegas on October 6th 2023–It is a truly 4D movie production with surround sound, wind and smell simulation. Though it is family friendly there are some intense storm scenes with loud thunder and seat vibration.

One of our own Nic Jones (BFA-Lighting 08′) is the Lighting Programmer!
