Just like the Astronaut Farmer

Arvinder Kang from Ole Miss pointed me to this strange project from a guy who grew up in Knoxville and South Africa, and now lives in Greensboro, NC.

He's creating an IMAX movie from still photos. Ah, yes.

There's a web site

Stephen van Vuuren says he is creating an "IMAX movie in the basement." I think it's kind of a Billy Bob Thornton "The Astronaut Farmer" does a big budget movie in the basement instead of a rocket ship in the barn.

According to the Web site, the movie "Outside In" is a giant-screen visual symphony that aims to artistically bridge science and spirituality as it journeys from the big bang to the Cassini-Huygens Mission at Saturn."Outside In" is a giant-screen visual symphony that aims to artistically bridge science and spirituality as it journeys from the big bang to the Cassini-Huygens Mission at Saturn.

Well, he tells his story here:

His blog explains the "YouTube" effect of the video clip this week.

Charlie Farmer made it into space; maybe Stephen van Vuuren will make this movie.
