Outside In is a non-profit giant-screen film that takes audiences on a journey of the mind, heart and spirit from the big bang through the history of the universe and humanity via the Cassini-Huygens Mission at Saturn. Currently in production after years of development, Outside In aims for global distribution late next year. The release of the first one minute of footage from the film went viral this spring, resulting in 3.2 Million hits and global media coverage in over 200 countries.

“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.”
(Daily Mail Online, UK)

Composed entirely of actual photographs from space missions, astronomers, telescope and vast historical sources animated using innovative visual techniques developed by the filmmaker, Outside In 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 & science documentary into a rich experience for audiences that will feature an extensive outreach and educational plan in concert with science advocacy groups around the world.

The film will be presented in beyond Hollywood quality 5.6K resolution on massive screens and concert-level surround systems to audiences in giant screen institutions, IMAX™ theaters, planetariums, museums and select 4k digital cinemas.

Complete details are available on the film's official website.

Just as the publication of first picture of the whole earth from Apollo 8 helped launch the global environmental movement, our best hope for solving humanity's problems is the change in perspective that comes from exploring the cosmos and seeing Earth from the outside, in.
