In Saturn’s Rings

As many people like the previous post with the earth ring, you may enjoy this beautiful trailer for a film- 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).

 Official Teaser in 4K

In Saturn’s Rings directed by Stephen van Vuuren

In Memory of Carl Sagan and Stanley Kubrick

Most of the photos were taken by the Cassini-Huygens spacecraft during his mission, which was launched in 1997 and arrived at Saturn in 2004.


A computer is actually not even required to do this – it could all be done exactly using photoanimation techniques from 100 years ago (…). 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.

« In Saturn’s Rings » is a space film for IMAX, giant screen and fulldome theaters coming spring 2014.
