In Saturn's Rings

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, In Saturn's Rings stretches the boundaries of the motion picture form. The film will feature powerful music by Ferry Corsten, William Orbit, Samuel Barber and melds non-narrative visual poetry and science documentary into a rich experience for audiences.

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.

Using hundreds of thousands of still images manipulated to create full motion, using "2.75D" photographic fly-through technology. The film will be presented in IMAX quality 6K resolution on massive screens and concert-level surround systems to audiences in giant screen institutions, IMAX theaters, fulldome planetariums, museums and select 4k digital cinemas.

This film is nearing completion, but the director has started a Kickstarter campaign to raise funds for a live recording by the Greensboro Symphony Orchestra of "Adagio for Strings," which will be the major part of the soundtrack to this extraordinary film.

They met their minimum goal today, but if you would like to make a contribution, I'm sure they could use it. This is a non-profit film, and they need all the help they can get.

Be sure to check out the trailer on that link. This film is going to be amazing!

Looks absolutely fantastic.

And hopefully it won't come too late for Cassini, which looks like it may be in a FY-15 budgetary deathmatch with the Curiosity rover. (The correct answer of course is to try to ensure that the sequester cuts don't affect either program.) For that, we should all be calling our Congresspersons and the WH.
