NOVAE - An aesthetic vision of a supernova

190 seconds | 1920 x 1080 | Thomas Vanz
Headphones and 1080p recommended.

Novae is a movie about an astronomical event that occurs during the last evolutionary stages of a massive star's life, whose dramatic and catastrophic death is marked by one final titanic explosion called supernova.
By only using an aquarium, ink and water, this film is also an attempt to represent the giant with the small without any computed generated imagery.
As a tribute to Kubrick or Nolan's filmography, Novae is a cosmic poem that want to introduce the viewer to the nebulae's infinite beauty.

Novae est un film qui conte l’histoire d’une supernova, à savoir la mort d’une étoile géante dans une explosion cataclysmique.
En s’aidant uniquement d’encres et d’un aquarium, ce film se veut aussi une tentative de représentation du monde infiniment grand avec des phénomènes du quotidien, en s’interdisant d’utiliser des images de synthèse.
Comme un hommage aux films du genre de Kubrick ou de Nolan, Novae est une ode et une introduction à la beauté infinie du monde des nébuleuses.
