Fifty Shades of colour, these fantastic worlds

Fifty Shades | These Fantastic Worlds

A video homage to vistas where no man has gone before, certainly beyond the intimate preoccupations of a certain shady movie. Instead we celebrate the call of the dark corners and deep space, of the superheroes, and the scientists, the ancient philosophers and the star seekers; so this one’s for the Big Bang Theory (event and TV show), and The Walking Dead, for the hordes of Star Wars fans, for The Matrix, for Buffy, Willow, Spike and Angel, for Marvel, DC and Dark Horse, for Bernie Wrightson, Frank Frazetta, Barry Windsor Smith, Jeff Jones, Alan Moore, Neil Gaiman, Arthur C. Clarke, William Gibson, H.P. Lovecraft, Robert E. Howard, Stan Lee, Gene Colan, Jack Kirby, Gerry Roddenberry, Guilermo del Torro, Ridley Scott, Terry Gilliam, George Lucas, J. J. Abrams, Zack Snyder, Joss Whedon, and the great Stanley Kubrick.

The music is Strauss’ ‘Also Sprach Zarathustra’ used by Kubrick in 2001: A Space Oddyssey. The shades are Will Smith‘s from ‘Hancock‘ and all the images are from deep field photos taken by the Hubble space telescope made available, incredibly, for the public domain, by NASA.

So welcome to the black and white and interstellar colour of These Fantastic Worlds. No shades of grey here…
