In Alfonso Cuarón’s Gravity, Sandra Bullock plays Dr. Ryan Stone, a scientist who finds herself in the wrong orbit at the wrong time. After a nearby satellite is blown up by a Russian missile, Bullock and George Clooney – who plays veteran astronaut Matt Kowalski – attempt to salvage their vessel and lives through a series of space walks. Throughout the movie, Bullock wrestles with a wide swath of emotions, and accentuating every scene is composer Steven Price’s excellent score. Each moment is soundtracked with a keen sense of direction, as Bullock’s emotions soar in front of your eyes and ears. We spoke with Price about composing the Gravity score, why he avoided revisiting classic space films and how the Beatles fit into the master plan.
Japanese photographer “DarwinFish105" just created one of the most innovative time-lapse videos around. He started with a typical time-lapse setup while driving across the city, but in the post-processing, he used a mirror effect to split the video down the middle. You’ve just gotta see it.
