The Universal Sphere

Framestore is proud to be a part of an immersive experience, created in collaboration with Steven Spielberg and DreamWorks Animation, for Comcast’s Philadelphia based planetarium-style theatre, the Universal Sphere.

After nearly 10 months of production and post work, the final 6-minute film is a breathtaking celebration of human invention, exploration and the origin of revolutionary ideas. Throughout the experience, audiences will journey through space, swim alongside a 200-ton whale, fly above the summit of Mount Everest and even sail to the fabled edge of the world.

Unlike a standard movie screen, the sphere offers a nearly real world experience with its 258-degree field of view. Rendered in accurate perspective to the viewer, audiences will feel as if they are truly immersed in the film.
