A reinterpretation of a nasa poster created by JPL Visions of the Future Posters


Historical Mars Poster

"NASA's Mars Exploration Program seeks to understand whether Mars was, is, or can be a habitable world. Missions like Mars Pathfinder, Mars Exploration Rovers, Mars Science Laboratory and Mars Reconnaissance Orbiter, among many others, have provided important information in understanding of the habitability of Mars. This poster imagines a future day when we have achieved our vision of human exploration of Mars and takes a nostalgic look back at the great imagined milestones of Mars exploration that will someday be celebrated as “historic sites.”"

Here are a couple of shots from the final title sequence. I wanted to capture the essence and feelings of the poster in a motion format.

Since there was many overlapping objects, I had to re illustrate many of the shapes found in the poster. This poster felt like it would be for a museum or for a tourism service and therefore I thought it would be cool to showcase possible future locations in Mars.

I used the poster description to make up a few different Mars landmarks that may possibly exist. I hypothesized that we would have agriculture, or an observatory in mars.

The music is made to feel uplificting and provide a sense of discovery and positivity.

The whole video was supposed to feel like one long journey through mars. The camera passes by all these landmarks and concludes with the hero object of the poster, which represents the museum or tour service.
