A Trip To Infinity—

An exploration of the concept of infinity and the universe.

 

In this mindblowing documentary feature created for Netflix, Directors Jonathan Halperin & Drew Takahashi take viewers on a journey through the minds of several physicists, cosmologists, mathematicians, and philosophers.

The film features a myriad of stunning animation vignettes from artists & studios across the world. Studio AKA was approached by U.S-based media company Room 608 to collaborate on the film, and we chose to illustrate a compelling segment that discusses the End of the universe.

AKA Animation director Gergely Wootsch and FX Animator Deniz Cinar, along with our compositor Will Eagar, created the almost 6-minute-long segment that features a stunning array of otherworldly scenery.

It makes you think …

“A Trip to Infinity’ was a rare undertaking that educated us and made us think and contemplate. We worked on the ‘End of the Universe’ segment, where the narration dives into the more philosophical implications of an infinite timeline. From the get-go, Drew and Jonathan [the directors] knew they wanted a slow and contemplative approach. They had entrusted us with the creative freedom to explore the visuals based on the voice-over and music whilst gently guiding us towards what they had imagined.

The segment is slow-moving, guided by the music and the narration. Various cosmic scenes play out in succession until the last living being of the universe slowly fades away. It’s a profoundly sad segment. Still, I had a lot of fun creating the visuals for it and imagining cosmic landscapes and particles flying around.”

– Gergely Wootsch, Animation Director.

“We approached Studio AKA to create a crucial section of our movie, knowing exactly what we wanted and needed but with absolutely no idea how to get there. Sharon Titmarsh held our hands as Gergely, and the team brought it to life. The resulting film was so devastatingly powerful that we were then challenged to bring the audience back from existential despair and end the film with some sense of the value of being human despite all our limitations.”

– Drew Takahashi, Director of A Trip to Infinity
