Wanderers – Sci-Fi Short Film by Erik Wernquist

Wanderers, a sci-fi short film by Erik Wernquist that offers a visionary view of futuristic space traveling.

Stockholm, Sweden based digital artist and animator Erik Wernquist has directed this science fiction short film named ‘Wanderers’. His short film provides an imaginative vision of human’s future expansion into space. Using lots of scientific knowledge as well as ideas and conjectures, Erik Wernquist has developed amazing digital recreations of diverse places in our solar system. All of his visuals are built from real photos and map data. You can find further information and selected stills with detailed descriptions below the video.

Just like our ancestors populated the earth thousands of years ago, one day we will be able to travel the universe to explore and colonize other planets. Erik Wernquist’s aim was to show a glimpse of this fascinating idea. This visionary view gives an idea of how it might be to enjoy a blue sunset on Mars or going on a hike across the icy plains of Jupiter’s moon Europa. With permission from Ann Druyan, Erik Wernquist used the voice of astronomer and author Carl Sagan to narrate the short film. Below you can find a selection of stills with some background information on the shown places.

Wanderers was also featured in our Vimeo Group and Channel. Feel free and find more of Erik Wernquist’s work on his website.
