Inspirational Short Film Star Stuff, About a Young Carl Sagan

Star Stuff from Ratimir Rakuljic on Vimeo.

There’s something super special about this video. Maybe it’s the adorable child actor they got to play Lil Carl Sagan, or maybe it’s the perfectly composed music that swells to emotions comparable to Cosmos and museum documentary soundtracks. Or it could even be its incredibly inspirational, stirring message reminding us that we are all made of star stuff. Sagan had a certain way with words, and this video captures that incredibly well.

Take a look. What did you think?
