Perhaps it was hearing the words of Carl Sagan once again, but this short little animation truly touched me, truly made me think. For any creative work that translates into “mission accomplished.”
A visual response to Carl Sagan’s famed ‘Pale Blue Dot’ monologue, where he muses on our planet’s appearance in a photograph taken by the Voyager 1 space probe. The most distant photograph ever taken of Earth.
This was a free-time project, designed and created in After Effects with extensive sound work created to sit along side the music from Cosmos and spoken word from Sagan. I had wanted to bring visuals to Sagan’s words for some time and finished this after working on it periodically over the last 3 months.
Thanks for taking the time to view.
