Whimsical space explorer journeys to Earth to learn about 'OMNIMAX', and along the way discovers the sights, sounds and spectacle of New York City and the Tri-state region, learns the meaning of freedom, and makes a novel friend for life.
The star field that opens the movie was made by simple double-exposure photography of back-lit black construction paper with pinholes. The first pass was a static shot; the second, overlaying image achieved by an ultra-slow zoom in; the resulting visual effect on an 88-foot dome screen is intergalactic travel through the universe.
