Founded in 2020 by filmmaker Stephen van Vuuren, Saturnscape is the culmination of his 25 years of indie filmmaking experience and his labor of love "In Saturn's Rings", a long-form giant screen/fulldome documentary, 15+ years in the making, narrated by LeVar Burton.
Saturnscape Pictures is "by filmmakers, for filmmakers and film lovers". We are ultra-lean and put all we have in the frame. We believe that sci-fi is the noblest genre and "B-Movie" often outlives a "A-Movie" over time. From "2001: A Space Odyssey" to "Solaris" to "Aliens" to "Under the Skin", sci-fi is our inspiration, motivation and way of life.
Stephen works professionally at his freelance company SV2 Post (formerly SV2 Studios) that provides turnkey post-production services for independent filmmakers.
“Unlike all the other art forms, film is able to seize and render the passage of time, to stop it, almost to possess it in infinity. I’d say that film is the sculpting of time.”
– Andrei Tarkovsky
