** See thread entry #14 for the FINAL VERSION of this video**
Last week I received my new "Dream Station" video editing workstation from the States and I have been dying to put it through its paces. Not having any new original video in the can to work with, I went back to the ESA/Hubble website and downloaded a bunch of copyright free animation clips for future reference. In the process I got inspired and used some of them to put together a five and a half minute piece set to music.
This was harder than I thought as this stuff was all PAL based and a mix of HD and SD clips, requiring me to juggle and adjust the aspect and pixel ratios on the fly. In the end, I was pleased with the outcome.
The aim here was to tell a story with vision and music, without narration.
Logline: "In the distant future Earth's Sun will expand into a red giant star as it begins to die, consuming all the inner planets of the solar system including the Earth."
