Our Team

Jiří Dušek – the director of the Brno Observatory and Planetarium and also the director of the festival. He is looking forward to you very much and is going to meet each of you personally. He loves fulldome films, spicy food and Asia.

Pavel Gabzdyl – the main creator of shows in our planetarium and an excellent photographer. He is the closest colleague of Jiří Dušek, so when Jiří is busy, he fills in for him. He loves music, especially Pink Floyd.

Jan Píšala – graduated from nuclear chemistry, but mainly engaged in astronomy. He created a lot of educational shows for planetariums and wrote several books. He likes showing chemical experiments, so watch out not to be caught by him.

Tomáš Hladík – a technician and a real handyman. Thanks to him, hopefully, our digital planetarium will go like clockwork. Since he comes from a little town in South Moravia, he has his own folk costume, richly decorated festive clothes typical for a particular area! We’ll see if he finally puts it on…

Pavel Karas – another IT guru in our team. He is the master of light and sound – takes beautiful photos and has a band Nevermore & Kosmonaut. If you like, you can have a look at one of his music clips. I wonder if you can identify Paul in them.

Zuzana Kuljovská – loves good food, likes going to theatres and is incredibly reliable! Do you remember Mr. Wolf from Pulp Fiction? Well, that’s her – Zuzana can solve every trouble…

Ondrej Kamenský – is in charge of guest service. But don’t try to mess with him. His hobbies include historical fencing and fire shows!
