Filmmaker turns to Kickstarter for a journey into the brain

John P. Mello Jr. | April 9, 2013
Researchers seek to raise $25,000 by May 14 to produce a dome-format movie made with real 3D images of the brain that will search for the biological reasons we need to go where no one has gone before.

The team's first goal is to use the $25,000 from Kickstarter to create a five-minute animated planetarium sequence that merges images of the brain and space.

Later, it hopes to create two ten-minute animations in dome-o-rama. One would follow light from a distant star to Earth and through the brain's visual pathway. The second would visit some of man's latest space achievements and the regions of the brain involved with exploratory behavior.

It also plans to produce flat-screen versions of the animations for viewing on a plethora of devices.
