Stephen van Vuuren painstakingly created the technologically groundbreaking, giant-screen film over 12 years, using more than 7.5 million photographs from space.

The founder of SV2 Studios, he used a process called multiplane photo animation — developed as a cinematic art form by Walt Disney — to seamlessly join and animate the photos to full motion.

Narrated by actor LeVar Burton, the film takes viewers on a journey through space, from the Big Bang to the rings of Saturn.
