This short film uses real images to create a beautiful, fictional fly over of the planet.
Jan Fröjdman has rendered a 3D flyover of Mars using actual images from the HiRISE camera on the Mars Reconnaissance Orbiter.
In this film I have chosen some locations and processed the images into panning video clips. There is a feeling that you are flying above Mars looking down watching interesting locations on the planet. And there are really great places on Mars! I would love to see images taken by a landscape photographer on Mars, especially from the polar regions. But I’m afraid I won’t see that kind of images during my lifetime.
It has really been time-consuming making these panning clips. In my 3D-process I have manually hand-picked reference points on the anaglyph image pairs. For this film I have chosen more than 33.000 reference points! It took me 3 months of calendar time working with the project every now and then.
Watch in full screen and in HD if you’re able.
