Ever imagine creating your own IMAX movie? Cinematographer Stephen Van Vuuren is working to do just that, and has created flythough sequences from thousands of images from the Cassini spacecraft’s tour of the Saturn system. The video above is just a sampling of this non-profit, giant-screen art film effort “that takes audiences on a journey of the mind, heart and spirit from the big bang to the near future via the Cassini-Huygens Mission at Saturn,” according to the “Outside In” website.
Ultimately, the film will recreate a journey through the solar system using only actual images taken by the robotic spacecraft exploring our solar system. Here, you can zoom towards Saturn, through the rings and fly past some of its moons. With music by Ferry Corsten, William Orbit, Samuel Barber, the film will meld “non-narrative visual poetry & science documentary into a rich experience for audiences.”
If you’d like to see this entire film come to fruition, and eventually watch it all on a huge IMAX theater screen, consider donating to the Outside In project here.
