Panel and Film: Multi-plane Animation and In Saturn’s Rings

Synopsis

After the screening of the short film In Saturn’s Rings, made by Greensboro native Stephen Van Vuuren, there will be a panel discussion with the director and other key creators to talk about the making of the first ever long form multi-plane animation film in history. This ground-breaking 8K Giant Screen work was twelve years in the making, painstakingly using the multi-plane photo animation technique to bring to life space–from the Big Bang to the Cassini-Huygens Mission to Saturn.

In addition to director Stephen Van Vuuren, the panel will also include:

–Jason Harwell, the film’s Universe/Galaxy Segment Producer who led the high resolution Hubble Galaxy images team

–Dr. Steve Danford (Associate Professor and Director of Observatories, Emeritus Department of Physics and Astronomy at UNC Greensboro) who was the film’s science advisor for the galaxy sections

–Tim Martin, Earth Science Teacher at Greensboro Day School, who created the educational guide for the film
