'A World Without Borders:' A Time-Lapse Message from Space

12/31/2012 6:40 AM Eastern

Filmmaker Giacomo Sardelli created this space time-lapse using not only images taking from the International Space System, but also audio messages of peace and harmony from the astronauts who have lived there over the past 11 years.

Sardelli explains, "Pictures were downloaded from the Image Science & Analysis Laboratory, NASA Johnson Space Center and edited with Photoshop CS6. Even if they were Hi-res images shot with Nikon D3S cameras, a lot of noise removal and color correction was needed, especially for those shots at ISO 3200, which was the highest ISO speed limit I’ve allowed myself to use, exception made for the last sequence of the spinning world, which comes from a sequenze of shots taken at ISO 12800. Daytime shots were taken at ISO 200. I’ve used Topaz Denoise 5 for noise removal, as it is very powerful and accurate when dealing with shadows and blacks."
