Flying over Mars (in 3D)

The thought of one day being able to see Mars out the window each morning fills me with hope for the human race – the only race on our planet. To ensure the survival of our species in the long run we need to get ‘off the rock’ on which we were born. As the only species on the planet that has achieved spaceflight so far, we should be focusing on this goal.  Until we look at our long term survival as an opportunity to grow, and venture out there, we’ll have to rely on the creatives who are already out there.

A FICTIVE FLIGHT ABOVE REAL MARS from Jan Fröjdman on Vimeo.

Jan took the HiRISE anaglyph images of Mars that hold information about the topography of Mars surface and with hundreds of high-resolution images created different studies in 3D.

In the film above he chose locations and processed the images into panning video clips. This gives you the feeling that you are flying above Mars looking down on the planet.
