Erik Wernquist is a filmmaker with a passion for space exploration — with a real-life angle.  In his stunning new short film entitled WANDERERS, Wernquist uses real NASA photographs and satellite maps of planets and moons in our Solar System as the basis for each location in the film.  Wernquist writes: “WANDERERS is a vision of humanity’s expansion into the Solar System, based on scientific ideas and concepts of what our future in space might look like, if it ever happens.  The locations depicted in the film are digital recreations of actual places in the Solar System, built from real photos and map data where available.  Without any apparent story, other than what you may fill in by yourself, the idea of the film is primarily to show a glimpse of the fantastic and beautiful nature that surrounds us on our neighboring worlds — and above all, how it might appear to us if we were there.”  You can watch it in full above and learn more by visiting
