In Saturn’s Rings - In Memory of Carl Sagan and Stanley Kubrick

In Saturn’s Rings is a non-profit giant-screen art film 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. Currently in production after years of development, In Saturn’s Rings aims for global release late next year.
Composed entirely of still photographs using innovative visual techniques developed by the filmmaker who spent 6 years developing a way to fly through real photos from space. The film used over 1,000,000 photographs.
“Until someone actually puts a high-definition IMAX™ camera on an interplanetary probe, Stephen van Vuuren’s fly-through of the Saturnian system may stand as one of the most ambitious non-profit efforts to create a virtual spaceflight using real images.”
“The result is a seamless journey that is spectacular in its originality and otherworldliness, perhaps even rivaling the majesty of Stanley Kubrick’s timeless 2001: A Space Odyssey.”

“I think it’s time for some mind- and spirit-cleansing beauty. Something to remind us that humans and nature can sometimes produce awe-inspiring things. Like this video.”
“OMG – mind officially blown! What an incredible labour of love this is … take the 2 and a half minutes to watch this, then imagine it in IMAX™! Book my tickets ASAP!”
This amazing film is entirely non-profit. In Saturn’s Rings will be the lowest budgeted film in comparison to the average $6,000,000 in IMAX visual effects. You can donate and support the film here.
