Marilyn Myller

A year in the making, the full six minute stopmotion short features the voice of Josie Long, one zillion hand carved tiny things, literally tens of carved foam puppets, two eye fulls of in-camera, long-exposure light trickery and a pair of tiny dolphins, smooching.

The footage in this little film was captured by the hardworking men and women at NASA and The European Space Agency with the Cassini Imaging Science System.

Now if we’d only get to see ALL of the footage, that would be truly amazing.

Moon Saturn Occultation – 22 Feb 2014

Captured from Perth, Western Australia, just on dawn, by Colin Legg.

Equipment: Celestron C8, f/10, prime focus. Canon 5D2, running Magic Lantern RAW video firmware in 3x crop mode @ 1880 x 1056 resolution. 1/60 sec exposure, ISO 200, 10 fps.

What does this have to do with post production? The short answer is the radius of the moon is 1,080 miles, and maximum resolution of high-def video for television broadcast is 1,080 pixels.

Coincidence? No such thing.

What about Saturn? We’ll get back to that one later.
