This page features videos that show the grace and majesty of space. Enjoy!



The write-up on YouTube for this video pretty much sums it up:

Watch Earth roll by through the perspective of ESA astronaut Alexander Gerst in this six-minute time-lapse video from space. Combining 12 500 images taken by Alexander during his six-month Blue Dot mission on the International Space Station this Ultra High Definition video shows the best our beautiful planet has to offer. Marvel at the auroras, sunrises, clouds, stars, oceans, the Milky Way, the International Space Station, lightning, cities at night, spacecraft and the thin band of atmosphere that protects us from space.

This video, set to music from The Alan Parsons Project, pretty much sums up what we’re trying to achieve with our art direction. Slightly retro by about 40 years, but with some modernity and even some “futurity” thrown into the mix. We’re aiming for something that looks like it could be happening today, not a long time ago in a galaxy far, far away (not that there’s anything wrong with that kind of concept).



And this video is just plain inspiring, especially for filmmakers working in space-based science fiction!



Just plain WOW!
