What you’re seeing here is footage of Saturn and its moons made entirely from pictures taken by the Cassini space probe during its approach the ringed gas giant. Filmmaker Stepehen Van Vuuren has been working with those images to create an IMAX film called Outside In, which aims to present the beauty of Saturn and celebrate the achievements of the Cassini probe.
In addition to avoiding CG modeling, Van Vurren is accepting donations to help bring the film to fruition, calling it a non-profit project. Hopefully it’ll be coming to a giant-sized screen soon, I can’t wait.
