    This is the perfect opportunity for a Carl Sagan quote: "Somewhere, something incredible is waiting to be known." The footage in this little film was captured by the hardworking men and women at NASA and The European Space Agency with the Cassini Imaging Science System.

          First official teaser for "In Saturn's Rings", a giant screen space film for IMAX®, giant screen and fulldome theaters distributed by BIG & Digital, coming spring 2014. To watch in 4K, download "original file" (you need a fast computer and a 4K monitor to view it full rez). http://www.insaturnsrings.com/ https://www.facebook.com/insaturnsringsmovie https://twitter.com/insaturnsrings 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. A computer is actually not even required to do this - it could all be done exactly using photoanimation techniques from 100 years ago (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Photoanimation). 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.

              WINNER: APDG (Australian Production Design Guild) for Best Title Sequence Australian Effects and Animation Festival (Sydney, Australia): Nominated Best Title Sequence, Best Short West Chester Film Festival (West Chester, USA) • Sydney Film Festival 2012 (Australia) • Shanghai International Film Festival (Shanghai, China) • Roswell International Sci-Fi Film Festival (Roswell, USA) • Hollyshorts (Los Angeles, USA) • St Kilda Film Festival (Melbourne, Australia) / Winner Best Achievement in Production Design • BOFA Film Festival (Launceston, Australia) When a journey to another planet goes horribly wrong mid-flight, the few remaining survivors scramble to secure the cryogenic pods during a catastrophic system failure, and an ordinary female Engineer finds herself fighting to ensure the future of mankind. Cryo opens in triage, and the opening title cards were designed to reflect this by visually representing system malfunctions. The glitch-ridden, sci-fi style is carried through to video diary expositions (which feature as part of the titles, introductory sequence, and epilogue), as well as the end cards and entire animated end roller. In visually representing this systematic degradation, the titles not only reflect the damage sustained by the ship and equipment, but illustrate the fractured relationships of the crew - twisted, buckled and malfunctioning under extreme and sustained pressure. Noise, interference, and computer glitch effects were art directed and timed to create a sense of unease in the audience, leading up to the disclosure of the ship's dire situation - with the majority of glitch effects created manually, or, when plugins were used, keyframed heavily to achieve the desired result. Interspersed throughout the titles, the video diary sequences emphasise and graphically echo the mental state of the film's heroine. These sequences, including titles and roller, are intercut with actual NASA imagery: disturbing flashes of meteors, strange moons, and the unfamiliar silhouettes of forbidding planets, which serve to underscore the idea that we are in an unfamiliar and hostile space. The end credits continue the theme of fracture, with data readouts in the roller rewriting themselves to spell out credit categories. By fully animating the end roller, the audience is kept within the world of the film until the very last moment.

                This video is made with the RAW images of NASA's Cassini. After seeing amazing editions of this footage and once I had 3223 images, I decided to make my own video about Saturn and its satellites. You can download Cassini's photos from http://saturn.jpl.nasa.gov The music is Adrift And At Peace by Nine Inch Nails.

                    Saturn and Jupiter space voices recorded by Cassini and Voyager. By extracting the features of these space audios, I have controlled some properties of particles to create these visual movements. Some mathematical equations have been used to control the movements, velocity, Turbulence Size, Turbulent Displace, Time Factor, Size, Color and Speed of those particles based on the audio.

                      Satellite Reports is from the Drum and Space EP: www.drumandspace.com Available for streaming and download on http://outptandparis.bandcamp.com Drum and Space is a five song/video cycle chronicling the voyage of a future space traveller as she looks to trade the safety of her home world for the furthest regions of the universe. She begins as a optimistic explorer heading out on her own path of discovery, but her travels do not continue unaccompanied for long and her goals become more ambitious. ▲ ▼ ▲ In Satellite Reports, our interstellar traveller has left the bustling, populated space near home and is heading out towards the cool, unoccupied void. With no one to speak to, and nothing to listen to but the random transmissions of satellites, she silently contemplates her decision to go on. Looking out at the glow of distant stars, she begins to notice a common theme to the satellite messages. There is something else out here, floating in the vacuum. Something that has been asleep for a long time, waiting for a reason to wake up. ▼ ▲ ▼ Video concept and production by Mary Ann Benedetto/outpt Selected text excerpted from NASA log files Images from the Cassini Mission courtesy of JPL (http://www.jpl.nasa.gov/imagepolicy/) Produced by http://audiovisualalgebra.com
