LOOP - A Science On a Sphere movie - See it in 3D!
LOOP - A NASA film highlighting the complexities and implications of global circulation of our oceans and atmosphere. Created for Science On a Sphere in 2011.
LOOP is a NASA film about global circulation. The interaction of the planet's oceans and atmosphere is vital to all life on earth. Loop showcases the high-tech remote sensing and modeling that NASA is famous for, and contextualizes it via stunning full-wrap real world imagery. Science On a Sphere is a perfect platform to tell this story, as global winds and ocean patterns can be fully visualized, along with concepts such as the Coriolis effect and the endless cycle of Daisyworld. Ultimately, Loop is a exploration of the search for equilibrium.
While at NASA, Victoria worked as editor and videographer of Loop, and also edited this short trailer (watch below!) to help promote Loop on the web. Created specifically for NOAA's Science On a Sphere platform (SOS) and directed by Michael Starobin, Loop is fully spherical film, and the viewing experience speaks to the film itself: what goes around comes around.
Look for an SOS theater near you!
For an almost-spherical-experience, LOOP is available below in 3D.
Check out the official trailer for LOOP. No 3D glasses necessary!
