Join us Thursday, December 2, at 7 pm PT for a free NightSchool livestream!

Who among us hasn’t gazed up at the stars and wondered what other life might exist in the vast expanse of the universe? The Academy’s new, award-winning planetarium film Living Worlds transports viewers across space and time in the search for life in our Solar System and beyond, and unearths a deeper understanding of life on our one-of-a-kind home planet.

Get a behind-the-scenes look at how the Academy’s Morrison Planetarium and Visualization Studio team brought the film concept to life, from animating prehistoric dragonflies and distant exoplanets, to bringing a dynamic soundscape and cutting edge future spacecraft technologies to life. Producer Cheryl Vanderbilt is joined by design, visual effects and production supervisor Jeroen Lapré, plus sound designer Christopher Hedge for an out-of-this-world conversation about the making of Living Worlds.

All NightLife virtual programming is intended for audiences 21+.
