    Default The Living Cosmos

    I was bored yesterday and came across some nifty copyright free space animation footage on the ESA site, so I download some selected clips and had some editing fun. Here is a 60 second rush through time and space, ending with the Earth being swallowed by a black hole:

    Many thanks - especially as you've saved me digging around for the copyright/attribution info AND for the other link.
    In fact, you've been so helpful, I think I'll get you to conceive, write, direct, film and edit my next movie whilst I sit and drink coffee

    Totally loved that. Watched three times and that is very rare for me. ESA would be proud.

    Telling a story with found video is very hard and that was spot on.

    As a nerdy type I have recgnised most of the video you used and that was good to bend it to your will that way. Felt like a corny trailer to a disaster film.

    Stars.

    I suppose in the sequal episode I could have the remains of the Earth expelled out the other end of a worm hole as a gasous nebula... --smile--

    impressive for free stuff, thanks for the link..

    your video had a beginning...a middle... and a end, but remember faces are more interesting than places...so you need a sexy alien...then you would have the world at your feet..
