Everyone clean your bongs for Voyage Of Time -- a film shot over the course of four goddamn decades and spanning the entire globe in order to visually recreate cosmic and microscopic events that mankind is unable to witness firsthand. Think of it like Fantasia meets a PBS special -- all made under the watchful eyes of scientists from MIT, UC Berkeley, Cambridge, and Caltech.
But it's not just the content that's a scientific marvel. The film's visual effects were achieved through a combination of CGI, models, real locations, and chemical reactions filmed at varying camera speeds.

You've never realized watching paint dry could be so mind-blowing.
Because it's not enough making an epic documentary about the wonder of cosmos; you also have to shoot it in the most God-punchingly tedious way imaginable.
Duncan Jones Is Making A Blade Runner-Esque Spiritual Sequel To Moon
As the son of David Bowie and director of Warcraft, it's safe to say that Duncan Jones had an intense year. Despite being 10 years too late, the video game adaptation managed to do better than any film of its kind overseas, guaranteeing a sequel despite lukewarm American reception.
And you know what? That's great. Because along with seeming like a genuinely cool guy, Jones was also the director of Moon -- an amazing sci-fi film featuring Sam Rockwell and a robot Kevin Spacey. And while going from indie to blockbuster holds the heavy risk of spoiling a director, it appears that Duncan has shaken off that curse with his next awesome picture.
You're looking at a production drawing from Mute, a 12-years-in-the-making comedy sci-fi noir starring Alexander Skarsgard as a silent bartender searching for a missing woman in futuristic Berlin, only to cross paths with a seedy surgeon played by Paul Rudd. That's literally all we know about this film beyond the director describing it as "Paul Schrader's Hardcore meets Robert Altman's MASH" and "the Casablanca of the future," as well as having similarities to Blade Runner and being a "spiritual" sequel to Moon. But thanks to the film also being adapted into a comic, we do have this cyberpunk bovine material to go by:
No matter how weird the future is, there will be milk.
Yeah, that appears to be some kind of farm skyscraper overlooking a dystopic neon city of flying cars and congested crowds. Fucked if I know what any of that means, but after Moon, I'll follow the White Duke's starbaby marquees anywhere.
