"Cassini Mission" and "God of Small Things" by Chris Abbas
The footage for this film was captured by NASA with the Cassini Imaging Science System and features "2 Ghosts I" by Nine Inch Nails. For more info... go to Chris' vimeo page.
God of Small Things
In this film, Chris and his friend Sumit shot several thousand still photographs with a Canon 30D, intervalometer, and microscope borrowed from a teacher-friend. They then sequenced the stills and added some Múm as the soundtrack.
This post started off as a celebration of the "Cassini Mission" video... but then I explored Chris' vimeo uploads and "God of Small Things" and thought... wow, this needs to be included. Hence the updated post. I really loved these vids... and hope you do too.
