Losing the Dark Losing the Dark ORDER FORM
For all theaters, there is no license fee for Losing the Dark.
Our price is for a USB key onto which we copy the the movie files for this show.

For Losing the Dark, you'll need to enter two items by their  PRODUCT CODE  on our order form.

  1. The Zip file name from the Downloads page. Also note the file size.
  2. The Product Code for the USB key above. Be sure to order one big enough to hold the file(s).

We do not need to know your dome diameter, or number of seats. However, it is always useful to have that data for your theater's listing in the LNP FULLDOME THEATER COMPENDIUM.

Our fulldome shows are made in fisheye circle form, and ordinarily ship as ready-to-play movies, with audio and video files encoded/sliced/prewarped in formats and resolutions compatible with today's projector systems. We record the files onto USB Flash drives.

We usually do not ship dome masters directly to customers, but for Losing the Dark we have made an exception to our policy; 2K and 4K dome masters can be made available.

Losing the Dark does not require the signing of a performance license. We simply ask that you always present the program in its entirety when showing it to audiences.

While it may be possible to play videos directly from our distribution media, we expect you'll copy our files onto your fulldome system for optimum performance. We provide pre-written play scripts for some systems; others will simply edit button scripts or enter the necessary system commands to load and play the movies.

Most single-projector fulldome shows are shipped within 24-48 hours after receiving your order. Most multi-projector shows can be made and shipped within 72 hours.

When we ship your order, we include an itemized packing list, and send you an e-mail message with the delivery details (including FedEx tracking number if there is one).
