We are Stars is an immersive science documentary. This 360° cross-platform experience will seek to answer some of the biggest questions of all time. What are we made of? Where did it all come from? The film explores the secrets of our cosmic chemistry, our explosive origins and connects life on Earth to the evolution of the Universe.
NSC Creative applies its trademark approach of taking complex scientific concepts and making them accessible to all ages by using stylised and fun visualisations. We join the Time Master narrated by Hollywood superstar Andy Serkis and his audience of Victorian time traveling “2.0” characters on a 13.8 billion year adventure through time and space.
The film was informed by a team of leading UK scientific researchers and features super computer simulation data of the formation of the early Universe contributed from the Institute for Computational Cosmology, Durham University.
The soundtrack features an original immersive score by acclaimed New Zealand composer Rhian Sheehan. You are welcomed into a magical victorian wonderland and then whisked off to the edge of the universe and back via the heart of an epic exploding star. The eclectic soundtrack is available to stream and download for free at the film website.
We Are Stars is the third film in the NSC “We Are…” series following on from the award winning dome films We Are Astronomers narrated by David Tennant and We Are Aliens narrated by Rupert Grint.
We Are Stars is the world’s first science documentary designed and created for both VR headsets and immersive dome screens in full spherical 360° high frame rate stereoscopic 3D 8k x 8k.
Paul Mowbray, Producer “This film pushes the bleeding edge of VR out to edge of the universe. We hear a lot of concern as the rest of the industry gears up to dealing with high resolution 4k and high frame rates. We have been doing that since 2000, now we are moving to 8k, stereo 3D, 360 films and blazing a trail in immersive media production, hold onto your HMD!”
Max Crow, Director “When you start dealing with stories on the cosmological scale it is very easy to lose sight of the human story. With the “We Are…” series of films the human side to the latest astronomy and space science research has always been at their core. With We Are Stars it is more relevant than ever as we connect life on earth with the big bang and attempt to give the audience a sense of where they have come from and what they are fundamentally made of. The fancy headline technical specifications make for an incredibly immersive experience like no other but it is the story at its heart that truly immerses the viewer in a universe of wonder and enlightenment ”
