In Saturn’s Rings

First official trailer for In Saturn’s Rings.
The film was made by combining over 1,000,000 photos from NASA’s Cassini-Huygens, Apollo 8-17, Lunar Reconnaissance Orbiter (LRO), Hubble Space Telescope, Messenger Spacecraft, Suomi NPP (VIIRS), Galileo, Voyager 1 & 2, Solar Dynamics Observatory (SDO), Mars Reconnaissance Orbiter (MRO), amongst others…

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.
No 3D models, texture mapping, 3D CGI, camera projection, cloning or painting or any other VFX techniques are used – every pixel is what was captured in the photograph. The photographs are processed as minimally as possible – much less than your average Instagram photo.

I highly recommend full-screen HD.
