Astronomyths: Where the Sky Ends, the Myth Begins
The universe is a circle, and everything in it revolves; every single End, finds an equal Beginning and together the whole world goes round and round forever and ever. The universe of ASTRONOMYTHS is no different. ASTRONOMYTHS will playfully circle around your consciousness, taking you into an upward spiral flight through light and sound, which will dazzle your senses and explode your knowledge, until it ultimately changes the way you are able to look up into the night sky forever. It’s a digital planetarium show that blends modern astronomy with the ancient Greek mythology after which each constellation visited, was named after. Producer: White Tower Media, Inc. 24 minutes.
