Wanderers – a short film by Erik Wernquist

I actually forgot how I found this short film but its amazing si-fi short film titled “Wanderers” directed by Erik Wernquist, digital artist and animator. Astronomer Carl Sagan has narrated this short film, reading from his book Pale Blue Dot: A Vision of the Human Future in Space.

According to director: The film is a vision of our humanity’s future expansion into the Solar System. Although admittedly speculative, the visuals in the film are all based on scientific ideas and concepts of what our future in space might look like, if it ever happens.

Carl Sagan’s narration concludes as he states:

Maybe it’s a little early. Maybe the time is not quite yet. But those are the worlds, promising untold opportunities, beckon silently. They orbit the sun, waiting.
