Gobs on Sticks

Thoughts mostly (but not always) about the voice-over business, from London Voiceover Artist, Mike Cooper

    My name is Mike Cooper. I'm a full time Voiceover Artist living and working in London, and this is my blog. Find out more about me on my main website (there's a link further down this column), or if you'd like to hear some of my work, check out the files below.

Planet You 3D – now showing!

Posted by MikeCooper on July 24, 2009

Planet-You_webYou may remember me talking about Planet You 3D – the new documentary feature, produced by Chedd-Angier-Lewis, for which I recently provided the voiceover.

I’m thrilled to announce that the movie opens today at the Museum of Science in Boston, MA, with showings several times a day from 10.30am. If you’re in the Boston metro area and would like to take a look, you can check out the schedule at the Museum of Science website here.

“Imagine exploring an alien world where odd creatures roam bizarre terrain in search of food.  Then witness the attack and counterattack of viral bacteria at a cellular level.  Now imagine it all in 3D! It is an experience that will take you to a world you never knew existed before – a world that is so much closer than you think.  It is a microscopic journey into the foreign landscape that is your own…SKIN!

This 3D film mixes live action and cutting-edge digital computer animation to tell the story of just a few of the thousands of tiny critters that live on the surface of human skin. Viewers will encounter it all at an animated, microscopic level not seen before. It will leave them both amazed and perhaps a little uncomfortable in their own skin.  But it will certainly be an unforgettable experience.”

The film is a co-production with The Health Museum of Houston, TX, and opens there on Friday, August 7th, where it will show every hour on the hour (with a few exceptions – you can check the schedule here).

From here it’s hoped that the movie will roll out to science centres across the United States. I’ll keep you posted as I hear more! In the meantime you can check out the Planet You 3D production diary here for the background on how the film was made.
