Current projects:

Science Center Human Anatomy Projection Project (Phase 1) is an
interactive media exhibit currently in production by Ideum Inc.
Ideum will design and produce an interactive multimedia projection dynamically illustrating human anatomy and physiology for a science museum on the East Coast.

The production is directed by Jim Spadaccini, founder/CEO, Ideum Inc., and produced by Hugh McDonald, Ideum Inc.

"This is a uniquely exciting project, both because of its intriguing experience and also because of its scale and technical challenges,” McDonald said.

The production is employing 6 New Mexicans.

Exploring the Universe is an interactive media project currently in
production through December 2021.

Ideum is creating two experiences for the International UFO Museum and Research Center that will further expand the experiences at the museum.

In "Crash Landing", visitors press a big red button and experience an immersive emergency landing, complete with a 3D video experience and surround sound.

In "Galaxy Explorer," visitors explore the solar system, the galaxy, and the greater universe searching for the signs of what makes sentient life viable across the universe.

The production is directed and produced by Darold Ross, Ideum Inc.

“The new experiences for the UFO Museum provide a fantastic opportunity for us to add new and exciting technologies to a museum already focused on the future," Ross said.

The production is employing 10 New Mexicans.

All film and television productions in New Mexico are required to adhere to the state’s operative emergency public health order, associated public health restrictions and COVID-Safe Practices.
