A cross section of science on the cyberscreen

"In Saturn's Rings" Movie Trailer


If you love the programs at planetariums or the sci-fi films where you are visually propelled through the expanses of space, prepare yourself for a film specifically designed for the giant screen that explores the planet Saturn using only scientific photographs, primarily from the Cassini-Huygens mission, among others, stitched together and animated to full motion without CGI. "In Saturn's Rings" is to be distributed to IMAX®, giant screen and fulldome theaters in spring 2014.

Watch the first official teaser here:

"The film is 100% created using only flat 2D photographs (often hundreds or thousands per frame) stitched together for massive hundred megapixel+ resolutions that are scaled and zoomed using techniques developed by the filmmaker, based on Ken Burns' and 2.5D photo animation processes."

"In Saturn’s Rings is a film that’s both personal and universal, experimental and sincere, science and spirit , non-narrative and documentary. The goal is to use large screen imagery, synchronized to powerful but moving music, to create an experience for those who see it, hear it and feel it."
