Cruise Through The Solar System In This Moody, Atmospheric Short Film “Epoch”

We are big fans of Ash Thorp’s work and when we heard he had a new project titled “Epoch” we immediately checked it out, and…..as we expected….we loved it.  Here is what he had to say about it.

Epoch is an experimental film intended to take you on a voyage through our solar system and beyond. It is a personal project orchestrated to share our enjoyment and admiration for science fiction films and literature.

I have always loved space. Since I was a child, I dreamed of traveling to other planets and experiencing space as I witnessed in my childhood book inspirations and movies. Recently, I recalled that childhood admiration for astronomy and wanted to bring the dream of stars and space back to me via CGI.

Epoch is a result of merging my love of design with space and moving imagery. It is a visual exercise intended to communicate that childhood wonder and enjoyment without any commentary. By primarily utilizing visuals and music, it will allow the viewer to experience the passage through their own imagination.

I knew when this project began that this was going to be a somewhat linear journey, from one point to another and beyond. The basic core idea was to shadow the symbolic tale of David and Goliath, where in this film, David = Humanity, and Goliath = space and the unknown. Through similar scale, humanity is such a small presence in this vast universe, and it must overcome many unknown adversities to survive. The great unknown is indeed just that, unknown. It is hard to grasp just how large of a presence humanity must face as the resolve of one unknown only yields a new horizon of unknowns.

Do yourself a favor, pull down the blinds, turn off the lights, turn up your speakers and set the video to full screen and get caught up in the magnificence of “Epoch.”
