Wanderers is a vision of humanity’s expansion into the Solar System, based on scientific ideas and concepts of what our future in space might look like, if it ever happens. The locations depicted in the film are digital recreations of actual places in the Solar System, built from real photos and map data where available.
Without any apparent story, other than what you may fill in by yourself, the idea of the film is primarily to show a glimpse of the fantastic and beautiful nature that surrounds us on our neighboring worlds – and above all, how it might appear to us if we were there.
Originally, “Inside Out” was just this piano and vocal song, which was great, but I wanted it to have a little bit more to it and not just be some kind of silly ballad. I said to Jim, “Why don’t we do it like a Dr. Dre song?” I was obsessed with Dr. Dre’s 2001 album and I wanted to do something like that. 2001 is a great-sounding record. There are so many great tunes on it. It’s got a hell of an attitude.
