#10 – To Space and Beyond!

In ep #10 we venture into space – to boldly go where no man has gone before. Or more exactly: we’re going where lots of VFX artists have gone before – ever since Georges Méliès sent a bunch of people in top hats to the moon back in 1902. Because space movies have always been filled with VFX.

So why are space films so popular? How do you design black holes and convey light speed? And why is sound so important for an environment where – in reality – no sounds exist? Follow director Laurent Clermont and producer Anton Söderhäll to the far end of the Universe.
