Short Film: A Stop-Motion Movie Starring Saturn

Around Saturn Film

Why Watch? Most stop-motion films take a long time to make, but this one technically took two decades. That’s how long NASA spent building the Cassini-Huygens robotic spacecraft and getting it to the coolest-looking planet in our solar system (sorry, Jupiter).

Using images sent back, Fabio Di Donato crafted something that would feel at home at a state fair in 1915. It’s a black and white, silent trip to outerspace complete with a bouncy, woodwind-heavy waltz that’s a lot of fun.

Just watch out for the potential epilepsy.

Hat tip to our old pal Hector P. for sending it my way.

What Will It Cost? About 23 minutes.
